L. Paloma Rojas-Saunero

PhD student in Epidemiology

Erasmus MC


I am a PhD student at the Epidemiology Department of Erasmus MC . My research is focused on applying causal inference methods in cohort studies, specifically to emulate target trials for long-term exposures related to dementia and to understand the role of competing events in this setting.

I enjoy teaching and working with communities. This is why I help in the organization of R-Ladies Rotterdam , Reprohack and recently became an RStudio Certified Instructor .

I keep my heart close to home in La Paz, Bolivia.
