I am a statistician and epidemiologist with specialised interests in emerging infectious diseases and teaching methodologies in statistics. I am currently a lecturer with sigma, the Mathematics and Statistics Support Centre at Coventry University.
I obtained my PhD within the Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution and recently completed a postdoctoral biostatistician role with the Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine, both at the University of Edinburgh.
I have an interest in science communication and outreach through alternative means such as comedy and art. I also act as a media contact for improving the way statistics and risk are presented to the public as an Ambassador for the Royal Statistical Society.
