Suman Kundu, DSc, MSc
Suman’s research interest include investigating the impact of standard risk factors, genetic variants, and biomarkers in understanding the relationship between HIV infection and the risk of cardiovascular disease; methodological and analytical considerations in risk prediction research.
Suman is an Associate Database Administrator in the Vanderbilt Center for Clinical Cardiovascular Outcomes Research and Trails Evaluation (V-C3REATE) within the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He works in several NIH-funded projects and the Veterans Aging Cohort Study (VACS).
Prior to joining at Vanderbilt in 2015, he received his DSc diploma in Epidemiology from Erasmus University in the Netherlands and MSc in Mathematics and Statistics from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in India. His research largely focuses on the investigation of risk prediction of complex diseases through modeling studies and evaluates the expected predictive ability of risk models using simulated data in order to justify whether empirical investigation is warranted. He is interested in advanced statistical modeling applied in health science, and methodological and analytical considerations in prediction research.
