Research Interests


  • Statistics of ecotoxicological risk assessment
  • Statistical methods for the evaluation of no effects
  • Reliability of results from underpowered study designs




  • How to prove there is no effect: evaluation of the minimum detectable difference (MDD) and other statistical concepts that try to prove the absence of averse effects
