Dennis D. Cox, Chief Statistics Officer

Professor Cox is affiliated with Rice University, Houston, TX, USA. Professor Cox's primary interests are nonparametric function estimation, stochastic processes, statistical computing, and the application of statistical methods to complex scientific and technological problems, such as testing theories against experimental data when computational complexity limits the number of theoretical predictions that can be obtained.
Many such problems involve estimation of unknown constants or even unknown functions. Professor Cox has done fundamental research in the use of spline functions for such applications and extensive work in developing methodologies and practical computational approaches. He has collaborated with investigators from such disciplines as electrical engineering, neurophysiology, oncology, material science and economics.

Stressors and stress measures

Real, symbolic, or imagined stimuli perceived as threatening by a person represent a stressor.
In the human species, proximity of other nonspecific can be either soothing or a major stressor depending on the context and the individuals involved.
Many factors constitute a major stressor for the elderly, especially those with cognitive impairment, when they are admitted to or stay in a hospital or nursing home.
Thus, adequate measures against stressors are paramount as a first step to reduce the negative influences of psychological stress to health.
Continuous psychological stress monitoring in daily life is important. There are two conventional methods to measure psychological stress: self-report and body fluid analysis.
The self-report method is hard put to monitor human stress consistently due to the lack of standards for stress status. The body fluid analysis is invasive and cannot measure stress continuously. | Phone: +41 (0)79 317 7889 | Cassiopee Applied Analytical Systems, Sàrl, Lausanne, Switzerland
