Biography

Dr Craig Anderson is a Senior Lecturer in Statistics at the University of Glasgow. He obtained a BSc in Statistics from the University of Glasgow in 2011, and a PhD in Statistics from the same university in 2015. Craig worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Technology Sydney from 2015-2017 before returning to Glasgow to take up his current role.

As well as his research and teaching activities, Craig has a strong passion for outreach and statistics communication, and enjoys working with schools and the general public to improve understanding of the subject. He enjoys writing articles for non-academic media outlets such as The Conversation, and has also appeared several times on local and national radio to talk about this work.

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.
