I conduct biostatistical research and analysis in cancer epidemiology, and teach medical statistics. I am organizer for the Analysis of Hierarchical and Other Dependent Data and the Advanced Statistical Modelling modules for the MSc. in Medical Statistics.

Previously, I was Post-Doctoral Researcher and Lecturer in Biostatistics at the Interuniversity Institute for Biostatistics and statistical Bioinformatics of the University of Hasselt in Belgium.

My qualifications include a Doctor of Science in Mathematics, Biostatistics, and a Great Distinction Master of Statistics, Biostatistics, both from the University of Hasselt. I obtained a First Class Honours Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Statistics, from the University of Nairobi in Kenya.

An experienced biostatistician, I have conducted extensive collaborative (bio)statistical work and consultancy in a wide range of substantive areas including chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, psychiatry, patient safety, HIV, food safety, social demography, and cancer.
