About me

I am a PhD student at the Department of Medicine, Clinical Epidemiology Unit (KEP). My research focuses on lifestyle epidemiology in relation to infections.

My PhD work aims to investigate the factors that play an important role in the occurrence of infections with a particular interest in the role of obesity, physical activity, sleep and stress.

From a methodological point of view, I am particularly interested in statistical methods for survival analysis.
