Research groupEvaluation of screening
As a mathematical modeler, my research primarily focusses on modelling the natural-history of diseases and developing and evaluating methods for risk-stratification in screening based on individual characteristics. I currently do this within the U.S. National Cancer Institute’s CISNET consortium, the 4-IN-THE-LUNG-RUN consortium and through my VENI research project on developing dynamic risk-based screening policies.
