Welcome. I am a statistical epidemiologist in the Cancer Epidemiology Unit at the University of Oxford, working primarily on the Million Women Study. I previously held a postdoctoral position in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Bristol, and received my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Queensland in 2005.
Research Interests. Broadly, my main research interests are in chronic disease epidemiology, with some emphasis on statistical and mathematical methodologies. Most of my current research focuses on associations between cancer outcomes and body size and related factors. I am also working on epidemiological investigations of seasonal and other temporal trends in a variety of health outcomes. My "interests" page has further details and information about my earlier work in mathematical biology.
Publications. A list of publications can be found on my research pages.
