He was also interested in the use of advanced statistical methods in overall health to illuminate the dynamics of infant mortality worldwide.
Currently his research activities are mainly dedicated to the study of the consequences of extreme prematurity on the fate of children (LIFT cohort) and the study of the determinants of unexpected infant death by participating in the establishment of a French national registry (Omin) in collaboration with Dr. Karine Levieux.
