Area of Work  

  • Design and analysis of clinical studies (phase I to IV) 
  • Accompying research of clinical studies, analysis of retrospective studies
  • Analysis of microarray data obtained from any experimental setting 
  • Research on simulation of high-dimensional data using plasmode data sets
  • My further research interest focuses on the application of Extreme Value Statistics in the framework of microarray data aiming in the estimation of tail distributions
