I have experience in statistical modelling for radiation research. More concretely I have been working in statistical models for cytogenetic biodosimetry and radiation epidemiology. In cytogenetic biodosimetry I have developed models for cytogenetic dose estimation, useful for predicting the derived health consequences in overexposed individuals. In the radiation epidemiology field, my task was to analyse the increased risk of leukaemia and brain tumours in paediatric patients exposed to ionising radiation by CT scans.

My research interests are count data models (including overdispersion, zero-inflation and finite mixtures), Bayesian analysis, inverse regression, and excess relative risk models. I am also interested in R-project programming and Shiny RStudio apps.
