I am a statistician; I completed my MSc in Medical Statistics at the School in 2013, and have subsequently worked at King's College (the Institute of Psychiatry) and UCL (the Cancer Trials Centre).

Prior to 2012 I worked for seven years as a communications and information manager for various charities providing support to people in prison, their families, and people seeking to resettle in the community after a custodial sentence.

Statistical Methodology

Teaching

I am a module co-leader on the Statistics for Epidemiology and Population Health (STEPH) module, which runs from October to December each year. My fellow co-leaders are Liz Allen and David Macleod.

Research

I divide my time between two strands of work:

a) I provide statistical advice to the MRC Ugandan Virus Research Institute. In particular, I work on data from the General Population Cohort, a long-running study based in rural south-west Uganda.

b) I do methodological research. This is often related to spatial aspects of data. Current projects include a simulation study of GPS sampling (in the absence of a sampling frame) and estimating population sizes using satellite imagery.
