My scientific work has led so far to 22 core statistical publications, 58 publications in biomedical journals, 2 patents, and 11 packages for R that are on CRAN. My Erdos Number is 4 and my H Index is 20 (at least, according to ISI Web of knowledge, 30th May 2018). Below, you find a resume of my education and previous as well as current positions.
