I recently joined the MRC Biostatistics Unit as a Research Associate working under the supervision of Dr Stephen Burgess.
My main research interests are in the area of causal inference, with a particular focus on using genetic information for causal inference, also known as Mendelian Randomization.
During my PhD in econometrics at Erasmus University Rotterdam, I worked on methods and techniques using genetically informed study designs to give new insights to economists.
