Role: Research Associate
Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Research Associate at the MRC Biostatistics Unit working with Dr. Brian Tom and Prof. Sylvia Richardson within the "STEpUP OA" collaboration, led by the Kennedy Institute at Oxford University, that aims at identifying molecular pathways of osteoarthritis (OA). This academic-industry partnership uses statistical and machine learning approaches to confirm whether multiple distinct molecular endotypes exist in disease or whether OA is “one disease” at the molecular level.
Previously, I have completed a PhD in Statistics at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. My PhD work, which has been done under the supervision of Prof. Marco Bonetti, focuses on likelihood-free estimation of statistical models to study the natural history of breast cancer, using mammography screening data.
