I am a Research Associate in Computational Statistics for ‘Omics Data Analysis’ at OCDEM (Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism), part of the University of Oxford.
I work closely with biomedical researchers led by Prof. David Ray in Oxford. I also collaborate with Prof. Andrew Loudon and other researchers at Manchester University, as well as being part of a computational biology group in Manchester, led by Prof. Magnus Rattray. My current work is funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council.
I completed my PhD in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Adam Letchford and Prof. Paul Fearnhead. The topic of my PhD was “Efficient Analysis of Complex Changepoint Models”, more information on this can be found here.
