Alexandros Rekkas, MSc
Alexandros Rekkas is a PhD candidate at the Health Data Sciences Department of Erasmus University Medical Center. Before starting his PhD, he obtained his BSc (2015) in Mathematics from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and his MSc (2017) in Statistics from Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.
His current research interests focus on predictive approaches for the assessment of treatment effect heterogeneity. Along these lines, he is actively developing the RiskStratifiedEstimation R-package that implements a standardized framework for the evaluation of treatment effect heterogeneity, leveraging information from a global network of healthcare databases.
