Dr Ananya Malhotra

Research Fellow

United Kingdom

I have a background in Statistics and obtained my undergraduate degree (BSc) from Sri Venkateswara College, University of Delhi (DU). Following this, I attained my Masters (MSc) degree in 2014 and PhD in 2018 from DU.

Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Statistics within the Inequalities in Cancer Outcomes Network (ICON) at LSHTM

Teaching

I have lead practical sessions on two modules - Statistics for epidemiology and public health (STEPH) and Robust statistical methods (RSM), each having about 20-30 students per session. This also involved marking project assignments/reports and writing a detailed feedback for each student.

Research

I am primarily interested in the application of machine learning methods.

My recent project involved derivation of a risk score using machine learning, for early identification of patients at high risk of pancreatic cancer using their primary care electronic health records.

My current work focuses on quantitative analyses of data on health status and multidimensional aspects of quality of life (physical, mental, social) of cancer patients treated with immunotherapy. Specifically, the aim is to understand the causal determinants of quality of life following immunotherapy treatment, identify patterns of immunotherapy related adverse events and investigate how it impacts the different components of quality of life
