Curriculum vitae

Scientific interests:

I am interested in statistical models for handling structured data like brain images, psychological questionnaires, or measurements over time. Part of my research is about developing the Latent Variable Models framework for neuro-imaging data and a statistical inference framework to handle small sample size and multiple testing. I am also developing methods for assessing treatment effects in presence of confounding, right-censoring, and competing risks (typically on registry data). Finally, I have two side projects one on the assessment of the benefit-risk of a treatment using Generalized Pairwise Comparisons and another on handling repeated measurements in sequential design.
