Research groupEvaluation of screening
Isn’t it fascinating that mathematics can save lives?! At Public Health Rotterdam, I aim to do so by combining my background in econometrics (MSc Quantitative Logistics) and natural sciences (BSc Applied Mathematics/Applied Physics) with public health.
My research focuses on how to use machine learning techniques to personalise screening policies, particularly for colorectal cancer. We aim to use an individual’s screening results obtained in the past to personalise their screening interval. This way, we should be able to target the screening programme to individuals with a higher risk, reducing the burdens and costs of the programme at population level on the one hand and increasing the life-years gained due to the programme on the other hand.
