Dr Maria Christodoulou

Senior Statistical Consultant

Biographical Sketch

I am a biostatistician and evolutionary biologist.  Prior to taking a position as a consultant, I was a researcher in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford as a member of Prof David Steinsaltz's group in biodemography. I am an expert in quantitative biology with extensive experience in teaching and training. My expertise ranges from experimental design to machine learning, with specialised knowledge in data handling of large longitudinal data. My background as a researcher has given me the experience necessary to support grant applications and manuscript writing, as well as ensure that good statistical practices are embedded in research projects. I am particularly passionate about developing and delivering training in statistics and R for non-statisticians.
