Complex survival data

My main research topic of interest is complex survival data, such as competing risks, multi-state models, frailty models. An important theme in my work is dynamic prediction; the development of prediction models that take into account the event history of an individual, as well as his/her prognostic factors.

Academic career

I did my PhD research at the department of Mathematical Statistics at Leiden University, under the supervision of prof.dr. W.R. van Zwet. The title of my PhD thesis, which I defended in 1994, was “Consistency of Resampling Methods”. After having obtained my PhD, I worked as post-doc at the University of Amsterdam, Free University Amsterdam, and Cambridge University. Since 2000 I work at the department of Medical Statistics, now Biomedical Data Sciences of the LUMC. In 2010 I was appointed full professor.

Prizes and honourable appointments

I received a ZonMW TOP grant in 2007, on competing risks and multi-state models. In 2016 I received the Hans van Houwelingen Award for “Dynamic frailty models based on compound birth-death processes”, Biostatistics (2015).
