My primary research activity has been primarily in the areas of HIV, HCV and, more recently, influenza clinical epidemiology both as a collaborating statistical epidemiologist and as a lead researcher. I am the principal statistician for the Icona Foundation Study, and have been critically involved with the design, analysis, publication of results as well as the initiation and management of an additional 10 years of follow-up for the cohort, starting from September 2007. I am responsible for several statistical analyses of the EuroSIDA HIV cohort and INSIGHT influenza cohort studies. I have key involvement in Icona Foundation Study and EuroSIDA being a member of the steering and supervisory committee. In HIV, my main research focus is concerned with the use and effects of antiretroviral treatment against resistant strains of HIV and how to best model it in the presence of complex confounding structure. My work in HIV clinical epidemiology has led to numerous publications and conference presentations since 1994. A recent analysis using data of COHERE led to an internationally recognised publication on clinical use of new generation sequencing. I have recently spend two years at University of Minnesota were I received intense training on the design and analysis of randomised controlled trials.
