My present research work concerns the application of mixed general and survival models in clinical epidemiology. Attention is focused on the selection and validation of the appropriate models. I currently investigate the numerical as well as graphical ways to extract the maximum extent of epidemiological information from them. The subject specific interpretation of the models’ parameters and predictions, in the different fields where they are applied (Dentistry, Infectious Diseases, Nephrology, Neurology, Psychiatry, Physical Rehabilitation etc.) is given the utmost consideration. Models suitable for the analysis of small size clinical trials are given particular thought.
My most recent research interest is the investigation of the clinical evolution of rare genetic diseases
