Welcome to Blogging the PhD.
I started blogging after an essay I wrote, Birthday Surprises, won the Imperial College Science Challenge in 2008 and went on to be published in Nature Futures and to win the Daily Telegraph/Bayer Science Writer competition. You can also find my writing at The Guardian Science Blogs.
This blog covers the experience of being a PhD student in a multidisciplinary field.
From 2009 to 2013 I was a PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Imperial College London, where my research is on the development of statistical methods to use genetic data in the estimation of disease risk.
In 2013 I passed my PhD and starting working as a statistician in industry. The views expressed here are my own.
