Biography

About me:

I am an Assistant Professor of Statistics at Durham University. My research mainly focuses on high dimensional statistics, longitudinal data analysis, mixed-effects models, change point analysis for high dimensional data, survival analysis, nonparametric and semiparametric models, joint modelling and model diagnostics. A major focus of my research has been on developing novel statistical methods and models for the analysis of complex data such as high dimensional data and longitudinal/multilevel data, especially from medical and health studies.

I have achieved Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. Last academic year, I taught the course "Topics in Statistics III/IV" for final year mathematics students. This academic year, I am teaching the MSc course "Models and Methods for Health Data Science".

If you are interested to do a PhD is Statistics or Data Science, please get in touch.
