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 also have an honorary role at the University of Manchester as part of the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health.
I work closely with biomedical researchers led by Prof. David Ray in Oxford and Prof. Andrew Loudon in Manchester, 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 and I am linked with the Centre for Biological Timing at Manchester.
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.
