Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on cardiovascular disease (CVD), with a special interest in the prevention of CVD in people with type 2 diabetes.

Specific topics are:

  • risk models for diabetes and its complications

I prefer to investigate these topics using advanced statisics for longitudinal data when appropriate.
