Research interests

I am an applied statistician interested in developing flexible models that enhance our understanding of data to facilitate inference. My research interests include quantile regression, survival data analysis, semiparametric models and multivariate data analysis. My main areas of application are biostatistics, epidemiology, forensic statistics, chemometrics and linguistics.

Teaching

I teach a variety of statistics courses and supervise student projects at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. I am interested in ways of teaching that encourage student engagement and interaction, and in designing assignments that enable students to learn by doing. In addition to in-person teaching, in recent years I have worked on designing and delivering online courses and assessments for the Online MSc in Data Analytics
