Curriculum vitae

I am a Research Fellow working on the Understanding Society Biomarker Project and for the ESRC Research Centre on Micro-Social Change (MiSoc). My current research is to apply and develop statistical methods using genetic information to understand the causal effect of exposure to health/social/economic outcomes. I also help to disseminate Understanding Society Genetic/Epigenetic data. Any informal enquiry about Understanding Society Genetic/Epigenetic data should be sent to our group email address:  genetics@understandingsociety.ac.uk.

My research interests are:

  • Causal pathway through mediators with genetic instrument
  • Instrumental variables methods (Mendelian Randomisation)  
  • Methods of Causal analysis
  • Evaluate mode effect
  • Longitudinal data analysis
  • Survival data analysis
  • Next generation data analysis (Hidden Markov / Random Field Model)
  • Epidemiology and life-course study in Ophthalmology research
  • Covariance model
