Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Demography, Body mass index, Heritability, Obesity and Gerontology. His Demography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Twin study, Socioeconomic status, Affect and Cohort. His Body mass index research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Physical exercise, Cohort study and Risk factor.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Young adult, Gene–environment interaction, Genetic variation, Human height and Genetic architecture in addition to Heritability. He works mostly in the field of Obesity, limiting it down to topics relating to Twin Studies as Topic and, in certain cases, Persistence, Family studies, Early childhood and Candidate gene. The various areas that Karri Silventoinen examines in his Internal medicine study include Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology.

His most cited work include:

  • Defining the role of common variation in the genomic and biological architecture of adult human height (1407 citations)
  • Comparison of Body Mass Index, Waist Circumference, and Waist/Hip Ratio in Predicting Incident Diabetes: A Meta-Analysis (680 citations)
  • Heritability of Adult Body Height: A Comparative Study of Twin Cohorts in Eight Countries (517 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Demography, Body mass index, Heritability, Twin study and Gerontology. His Demography research incorporates elements of Cohort study, Confidence interval, Socioeconomic status, Genetic variation and Cohort. His Body mass index research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Young adult and Obesity.

Karri Silventoinen focuses mostly in the field of Heritability, narrowing it down to topics relating to Gene–environment interaction and, in certain cases, Genome-wide association study. The Twin study study combines topics in areas such as Leisure time, Anthropometry, Zygosity and Genetic architecture. His work in Internal medicine addresses issues such as Diabetes mellitus, which are connected to fields such as Risk factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (70.29%)
  • Body mass index (42.00%)
  • Heritability (32.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Demography (70.29%)
  • Body mass index (42.00%)
  • Twin study (26.86%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Karri Silventoinen mainly investigates Demography, Body mass index, Twin study, Heritability and Confidence interval. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Birth weight, Cohort study, Young adult, Gene–environment interaction and Cohort. His Body mass index research includes themes of Obesity, Zygosity, Weight gain, Anthropometry and Socioeconomic status.

Karri Silventoinen has included themes like Leisure time, Genetic variation, Mean age and Genetic architecture in his Twin study study. His Heritability study which covers Gerontology that intersects with Disability pension. His Confidence interval study also includes

  • Odds ratio together with Endocrinology,
  • Proportional hazards model which is related to area like Depression.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Differences in genetic and environmental variation in adult BMI by sex, age, time period, and region: an individual-based pooled analysis of 40 twin cohorts. (56 citations)
  • Differences in genetic and environmental variation in adult BMI by sex, age, time period, and region: an individual-based pooled analysis of 40 twin cohorts. (56 citations)
  • Leisure-time physical inactivity and association with body mass index: a Finnish Twin Study with a 35-year follow-up. (23 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

His main research concerns Demography, Body mass index, Twin study, Obesity and Cohort study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gestational age, Gene–environment interaction, Confidence interval, Heritability and Socioeconomic status. His work carried out in the field of Body mass index brings together such families of science as Young adult and Genetic predisposition.

His Twin study research includes elements of Birth weight, Pediatrics and Genetic architecture. In Genetic architecture, Karri Silventoinen works on issues like Secular variation, which are connected to Genetic variation. His Cohort study research focuses on subjects like Cohort, which are linked to Biobank, Dementia and Depressive symptoms.
