Research Interests

My research interests are in developing statistical methods for use in epidemiology, focusing on disease mapping, and studies that investigate the effects of air pollution on human health. The aim in disease mapping is to quantify the spatial pattern in disease risk over a city or country, as well as determining whether there has been any increase or reduction in the risk over time. These spatio-temporal risk maps allow public health researchers to identify the areas at highest risk of disease, so that health resources can be targeted accordingly. The production of such risk maps requires flexible spatio-temporal statistical models to be developed, that can represent the changes in disease risk over space and through time. My second research interest is studies that estimate the health impact of air pollution exposure, both in the short and the long term. Both these themes are investigated using Bayesian methods, utilizing Markov chain monte carlo simulation.
