Danardono was graduated from the Statistics Bachelor Program, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) in 1992.  Since 1994 he works in the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, UGM; and is also affiliated with the Clinical Epidemiology Unit Faculty of Medicine, UGM.  He got a Master of Public Health in Biostatistics (MPH) from the Department of Biostatistics and Demography, Faculty of Public Health, Khon Kaen University, Thailand. The field of epidemiology and medicine motivated him to do methodological research in this area as his doctoral study, by then in 2005 he got Ph.D. in Statistics from Umeå University, Sweden. Since then, he has been working in teaching, consulting, and research in biostatistics, survival analysis, epidemiology, demography, mortality models, and statistical computing. 


Research interests

Danardono’s main research interests are in Survival Data (time-to-event data) Analysis and Longitudinal Data Analysis.  His research focus is on the development and application of Survival and longitudinal data analysis for epidemiological, medical, and actuarial problems.
