I joined the University of Zurich in September 2006, accepting a position as chair in Biostatistics at the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine. I am a member of the Faculty of Medicine (MeF) and the Faculty of Science (MNF).
I spent four years (2003-2006) at the Department of Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich as Associate Professor of Biostatistics. Before that I was Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Medical Statistics at Imperial College London (2000-2001) and Lancaster University (2001-2002).
I obtained my Ph.D. in 1997 on "Hierarchical Modelling of Longitudinal Data; Applications of Markov chain Monte Carlo" from the Department of Statistics at LMU under the supervision of Ludwig Fahrmeir. In 1995/96 I spent a year as Visiting Scholar at the University of Washington, Seattle, financed through a grant from the German Academic Exchange Service.
