Personal profile

Research interests

My research is focussed on Bayesian stochastic modelling, inference and assessment across the interface of statistics, epidemiology, actuarial mathematics and life sciences. I have an interdisciplinary research record, with involvement in cross-sectional projects concerning statistical modelling in areas including critical illness insurance, epidemics, health and morbidity. My work also involves collaborations with researchers in life and biomedical sciences. I have supervised a number of PhD students and PDRAs to completion and I currently supervise PhD candidates in topics including Bayesian model assessment in epidemiology, morbidity and mortality. Further research study opportunities are described on my personal webpage.
