I develop statistical methods to understand processes happening over time that cannot be observed completely due to complex observation and/or censoring processes. My work is driven by common issues arising in cancer research, including multiple related time-to-event endpoints and data collection schedules that differ across patients. In my methodological and collaborative work, I strive to translate data into information that is meaningful to researchers, doctors and patients.


Survival analysis, multistate models, non-parametric methods, clinical trial design
