I am a Statistician and Mathematical Modeller Research Fellow in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. I am also involved with the Statistics, Modelling and Economics Department at Public Health England.
I have a number of years experience working on a wide range of projects across government and academia in defence and health.
I studied mathematics and statistics at the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and obtained a PhD in applied probability from the University of Liverpool. After working for the Ministry of Defence for several years, applying novel Bayesian Inference ideas, I moved back into academia and the field of public health in 2010.
My general fields of interest include:
- Operational research
- Health economics
- Survival analysis and multistate models
- Small area estimation
My current methodological interests include:
- Care pathway analysis
- Excess length of stay estimation
- Multi-level modelling of spatio-temporal data, including aggregation of disparate sources
- Discrete event simulation (DES)
My current application areas include:
- Tuberculosis (latent and active cases)
- Healthcare-acquired infections
- Sexually transmitted infections (principally Chlamydia)
