About Me

My research focuses on statistical methods to analyse how biomarkers affect the risk of disease (joint modelling of longitudinal and time-to-event data).

I am developing a joint model to understand how Covid-19 antibodies affects the risk of infection after receiving a vaccine.

I graduated from a Masters in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Oxford in 2020. I then worked as a Statistician on the Covid-19 vaccine trials at the Oxford Vaccine Group, before starting my DPhil in 2021.

Research Interests

  • Joint modelling of longitudinal and time-to-event data
  • Survival analysis
  • Bayesian modelling

I am interested in developing flexible joint models using which can scale to large datasets. I am also keen to learn more about competing risks, interval censoring, causal inference and spatial statistics.
