As of June 2016 I am a working 4 days a week as a Senior Research Associate in Medical Statistics in the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol, with Prof Kate Tilling. I am looking at methods for understanding and accounting for missing data and selection bias, with application to the ALSPAC and ARIES data. I also work 1 day a week as a Senior Research Associate in the School of Veterinary Sciences with Dr Kristen Reyher and Dr Katy Turner, looking at analysing drivers for antimicrobial resistance in cattle.
Prior to this I was a post-doc in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology (DIDE), Imperial College (and still hold an honorary position there), with Prof Christl Donnelly. I was part of a team collaborating with the WHO on the analysis of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. From October 2012 to October 2014 I was a post-doc with Dr Steven Riley also in DIDE at Imperial College. I worked on spatial transmission models of influenza, within the FluScape project.
I studied Mathematics at the University of Bristol, graduating in 2008 with a BSc. I joined the Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences doctoral training centre in 2008, completed my MRes (graduating in 2010) and started my PhD in January 2010 and graduated in January 2013. Further details of my PhD research can be found here.
