Role: Research Associate
Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I recently joined the MRC Biostatistics Unit as a Research Associate working under the supervision of Dr Stephen Burgess. After my PhD in Genetic Epidemiology at Leipzig University, Germany, I worked on genetics of steroid hormones to identify sex-dependent regulatory mechanisms.
Now at the BSU, I will focus on causal mechanisms of time-varying or otherwise stratified risk factors in the Mendelian Randomization framework. In particular, I want to better understand the impact of time- and sex-dependent biomarkers levels or their change in level on complex diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, or chronic kidney disease.
