Following my BSc in Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Bath, I went on to do the MSc in Medical Statistics here at the School. My MSc thesis was in the field of genetic epidemiology, using random forest classification methods to identify the geographical origin of malaria parasites. I then worked as a Lecturer in Medical Statistics at the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine at QMUL, before returing to the School in May 2018 to join the SPEAK India modelling group.
