Research interests

I started my research career with curiosity about individual differences and the genetic aetiology of behaviour. I then developed an interest for the complex interplay between genetics and environment with an increased aim of applying research results into useful interventions. I moved to the MRC centre for transplantation with the desire of getting involved in translational research.

 At the MRC Centre I have gained extensive experience across the translational pathway, and acquired expertise in the development and validation of diagnostic and predictive tests of clinical outcomes, making use of multiple omics data. My success as embedded statistician lays in my genuine interest to understand the problem and take active part in the research process. My research interests include 1) incorporating patients preferences in the development of medical tests, taking into account the differential risk associated to low sensitivity vs. low specificity; 2) development and application of complex trial design that facilitates the transition to personalised medicine, including biomarker stratified trials and adaptive designs; and 3) application of machine learning methods that ensure robustness of the results avoiding false positive outcomes.
