Projects per year
Since 2002 I have been Professor of Public Health Epidemiology in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and also Head of Statistics at Health Protection Scotland (HPS). I have a joint appointment in the two institutes where I lead a team of researchers in statistics and public health epidemiology and manage the statistical research and consultancy service at HPS. In 2010 I was appointed as a senior research fellow with the International Prevention Research Institute, Lyon, France (http://www.i-pri.org/).
I am an applied statistician with interests in the application of Statistics over a wide variety of disciplines. Presently my main research interest is in statistical modelling of infectious diseases and in epidemiological studies. This involves work on statistical methods for the analyses of linked data, mapping diseases, pharmaco-epidemiology studies, which are linked to the FARR Institute Scotland, population simulation models for infectious diseases, meta analysis and the design of disease surveillance systems.
