Section of Genetics - Biostatistics Group

Current Research Topics:

  • Modeling the natural history of breast cancer and its interaction with population screening programmes;

  • Estimating non-linear effects of ionizing radiation while accounting for measurement error;

  • Developing methods for estimating the risk associated with rare genetic variants in genes associated with risk of breast, ovarian or colorectal cancer;

  • Using multivariate analysis techniques to reduce bias and noise in dietary measurements;

  • The use of Bayesian weighting schemes to optimize the discovery of novel genetic variants associated with genetic risk.
