I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the MRC Biostatistics Unit in Cambridge, having joined the Unit in January 2017. I am collaborating with Dr Paul Newcombe and Dr Stephen Burgess, and my research is on Mendelian randomization (loosely defined as the use of genetic information to assess the existence of a causal relationship between a measurable risk factor and an outcome of interest). Specifically, I am developing and adapting Bayesian model selection algorithms for choosing which gene variants should be included in a Mendelian randomization study. Before coming to the BSU, I completed a PhD in the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick, under the supervision of Professor David Firth. Briefly, my PhD research was on the presentation of results of Bayesian inference in statistical models where parameter contrasts are of primary interest.
