Research Interests

My main research interests lie in developing statistical methodology for health data, with a focus on health inequalities both in Scotland and globally.  I have a particular interest in spatial statistics, and the development of methodology for disease mapping.  Disease maps are an important public health tool in compare the risks of a disease across a geographic region, and in particular to identify regions of high risk which require additional health care resources.

I also have an interest in growth modelling, where I work on identifying and developing suitable modelling strategies to accurately capture the growth trajectories of young children in low and middle income countries.  By doing so, one can often start to identify the social and environmental factors which may lead to poor growth in these regions.
