Research interests

My research interests spans between the fields of mathematics and statistics, both on methods development and on applications to Health research and policy.

My recent research work has focused on Spatial Mathematics and Statistics, statistical learning and their applications to Public Health. I am particularly interested in spatial epidemiology with a focus on Alcohol availability, consumption patterns, and harm. This work has been funded by the MRC (Skills Development fellowship), the NIHR, and the Scottish and Northern Irish governments. I am a founding organiser of the Early Career Alcohol Research Symposium, currently funded by the Society for the Study of Addiction.

My work in Health Statistics includes the development of hospital performance measures relating to the quality and safety of care offered to patients, based on the analysis of large routine observational data, as well as the development and review of statistical methods in clinical trials (funded by an NIHR Research Methods Fellowship).

My mathematical research work focuses in the fields of Commutative and Homological Algebra, with connections to Representation Theory, Algebraic Geometry and Singularity Theory. I'm particularly interested in the study of homological properties of rings and modules.

Before taking up my MRC SDF fellowship I was an NIHR Research Methods Fellow in statistics. During my NIHR fellowship I worked on identifying measures of hospital performance and quality of care, based on the analysis of large routine observational datasets.
