I am a Postdoctoral researcher in Biostatistics at the Department of Medical Statistics and Bioinformatics of the Leiden University Medical Centre, the Netherlands. In June 2013, I received my PhD in Statistics at the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. During my PhD, I worked on several statistical problems within the area of survival analysis. Specifically, I contributed to the field of multi-state models, bootstrap resampling, nonparametric regression, variable selection and model building techniques, with special emphasis on biomedical applications. Since I enrolled the LUMC in November 2013, I have extended my research interests and expertise in several directions. On the one hand, I am interested on the development of new statistical methodology for the study of correlated survival data, motivated by the search of biomarkers for longevity and cancer based on survival data on families’ studies. Moreover, I develop new methods for the combination of several high-dimensional data sets in the prediction context and for testing their added predictive value within the European Union FP7 project MIMOmics.
