Current research

  • A bivariate copula GAMLSS for mixed ordinal and continuous data with applications to poverty dimensions (with Francesco Donat and Giampiero Marra)
  • coxlasso(): Regularized Cox frailty models for time varying covariates (with Andreas Groll)
  • Multiple imputation of censored breast cancer screening data with GAMLSS

Currently, I am expanding my research interests to applications of statistical methods in medicine and (genetic) epidemiology. If you work in either of these areas and are interested in any kind of cooperation, please get in touch.
