Keywords coping with multilevel/complex structures in outcomes with respect to clustering
multiple & composite discrete endpoints
modelling longitudinal bio markers measured with error and/or are missing
Areas of expertise -Development of prognostic models, validation and updating and promote the standardization of advanced and complex analytical procedures so that these can be implemented routinely.
