About me

I am currently a doctoral student at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics under the supervision of Marie Reilly. My main area of interest is the nested case-control design and the non-standard statistical approaches that one can use to analyse such data.

Research description

The title of my PhD project is "Efficient designs and analysis of extended case-control studies".

Regarding the nested case-control design, my aim is to use non-standard statistical approaches that enable exploiting efficiently the data provided in this design. In particular, I address the following topics 

  • Reusing data from nested case-control design to address a new research question.
  • Estimating baseline hazard and absolute risk from nested case-control data.
  • Using non-standard analyses to mitigate a problem of overmatching and handle clustered data in nested case-control design

Regarding the extreme case-control design, my aim is to develop tools and give guidelines to perform valid subgroup analyses.

Teaching portfolio

I have a considerable experience in teaching statistics in medicine/health in my home country (Belgium) for 15 years.

I have been involved in the following teaching activities since 2013 at KI and other Universities:

  • Basic courses in statistics at KI (biostat I and VetU)
  • Logistic regression at KI (biostat II)
  • Survival analysis at KI (biostat III)
  • Extensions to the design and analysis of case-control studies at University of Milano-Bicocca
