I am a postdoctoral research assistant working with Dr Jessica Barrett on building statistical models for within-person variability with applications in cardiovascular diseases and cystic fibrosis. I joined the MRC Biostatistics Unit in January 2022
I was previously a PhD student in Statistics under the supervision of Dr Julia Brettschneider (Warwick), Prof Thomas Nichols (Oxford Big Data Institute) and Dr Shahin Tavakoli (Warwick). I was part of a joint CDT program between the University of Oxford and the University of Warwick called OxWaSP.
I am interested in the development of statistical methods for the analysis of complex data. In medicine, longitudinal and time-to-event data can help to track disease risk and progression over time. In neuroimaging, I have used approaches from functional data analysis to derive indicators of brain health. In linguistics, statistical models for textual data can inform about semantic changes over time.
