Welcome to Blogging Beyond.
I am a statistician working in industry, and the views expressed here are my own. I have a special interest in interdisciplinary research, and in collaborative ways of working. I am fascinated by the energy that emerges when different cultures learn to communicate with each other. My training and experience spans Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology, Statistical Genetics and Statistics. My multidisciplinary background makes we well placed to lead or contribute to projects which at the interface of the life and physical sciences, or academia and industry. Or both.
I started blogging after an essay I wrote, Birthday Surprises, won the Imperial College Science Challenge and went on to be published in Nature Futures and to win the Daily Telegraph/Bayer Science Writer competition.
From 2009 to 2013 I was a PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Imperial College London. My thesis was on the development of statistical methods to use genetic data in the estimation of disease risk.
