My current research project involves developing statistical methods for longitudinal data analysis, particularly focussing on the use of latent growth curve models on data in which measurements for different individuals do not occur at the same time. This is a common occurence and can restrict the use of more flexible models.

Previously, I have worked in electronic health records research studying the use of statins, and cardiovascular disease in cancer survivors. I first became involved in research when I completed an intercalated masters degree in Newcastle, with a research project developing new materials for dental fissure sealants. 

I am funded by the White Rose DTP ESRC Advanced Quantitative Methods studentship.
