About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Biostatistics working within the area of survival analysis and in particular on the development and application of statistical methods for cancer registry data.

During my PhD I explored statistical methods for understanding the underlying determinants that drive cancer inequalities in terms of survival as well as methods for improving communication of complex cancer statistics. This involved extensions of causal mediation analysis and developments in life expectancy measures for summarising the cancer prognosis. A copy of my PhD thesis can be found here.
