My research domain is statistical methods for the analysis of complex datasets with applications in biology, medicine, biophysics, biochemistry, bioinformatics and epidemiology. The overall aim is to develop simple models that describe these complex data well and that provide insight into the relationships between the measured variables.
One of my research topics is the development of statistical models for multiple omics datasets. Technological progress makes it possible to measure different data sets. Retrieving information from this data poses, however, several challenges: The datasets must be integrated, their sizes reduced, and their relationships with health outcomes must be modelled. My current research focusses on modelling these high dimensional datasets over time in longitudinal studies.
Another research topic is the modelling of data from epidemiological studies. Here, I am interested in statistical methods for analysis of data from studies with non-random sampling designs. Examples are studies which only comprise families with at least one affected person and time-to-event studies where participants enter at different ages, hence subjects who experienced the event before entry are missing.
