Research projects

Research project(s):

During 2016-2017, Elham worked on a project entitled "A mathematical model of dementia risk factors to optimize clinical trials" at the Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis at University of Exeter. This project aimed to identifying modifiable risk factors by analysing human population cohorts.
