Projects per year
I joined the Integrative Epidemiology Unit (IEU) in 2017 to work on my current project, developing methods to explore the relationship between how variable different people are with regard to some repeatedly-measured indicator (for example their blood pressure) and a later outcome of interest (for instance a marker of cardiovascular disease). I work on this MRC-funded project with Kate Tilling (PI), Harvey Goldstein, Jon Heron, Laura Howe, George Leckie and Graciela Muniz-Terrera.
Prior to this role, I was based at the School of Education, as a researcher on an ESRC-funded project investigating the use of interactive electronic-books in the teaching and application of modern quantitative methods in the social sciences, and working as a part-time lecturer in Social Statistics/Quantitative Methods as well. The research work was with Bill Browne (PI), Chris Charlton, and colleagues formerly in the University of Southampton, including Luc Moreau and Danius Michaelides.
My earlier background is in biology and psychology, and the areas they intersect. I conducted my PhD, developing novel indicators of emotional state in animals, in the Animal Welfare and Behaviour group at Bristol’s Veterinary School, with Mike Mendl, Liz Paul and Oliver Burman. This followed my undergraduate degree in Joint Honours Psychology and Zoology (BSc); as such, I’m a graduate member of the British Psychological Society.
