Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a PhD Statistics Student, having completed my undergrad at Strathclyde in Maths and Stats.

My project is about the relationship between widening access and success at university. Widening Access is a project across the UK which helps potential students get access to university who would normally have barriers preventing them from doing so. This can range from being a carer, a refugee, living within a certain postcode, or attending a school which has a lower than average attainment record, plus many more attributes. The goal is to come up with a model which predicts whether a student will be successful at university or not.

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
