Projects per year
I am currently employed as a teaching assistant in the Mathematics and Statistics department and have been involved in teaching statistics classes across all levels.
My research interests focus on public health. My PhD project, in collaboration with the National Poisons Information Service, examines the variation in incidences of poisoning across the UK. I am particularly interested in applications of time series and spatial techniques to modelling the complex autocorrelation structures which can arise in human health applications.
In addition to my teaching and research duties, I am a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and am secretary of the Glasgow Local Group. I am also an active STEM ambassador, and regularly run workshops for school children to encourage them to pursue a career in science.
