Methodological areas: survival analysis, longitudinal data analysis, methods for current status data, simulation from structural models, inverse probability weighted estimation, marginal structural models, parametric g-computation, g-estimation, structural nested models, random dynamic regimes, competing risks.

Application areas: HIV, effects of lifestyle interventions on chronic disease, environmental and psychiatric epidemiology.
