I joined the MRC Biostatistics Unit in November, 2018 to work with Steven Kiddle on 1) identifying clusters of multimorbidities and 2) providing personalised and dynamic prognostic predictions based on patients’ morbidity patterns and biomarker trajectories using Electronic Health Records. My research interests in methodology are: latent variable models, in particular structural equation models, longitudinal data analysis, survival analysis (event history analysis) and multilevel models for lifecourse studies. In terms of applications, I have on-going collaborations with researchers in lifecourse epidemiology, social policy, demography and public health. My PhD thesis “A multilevel structural equation model for the interrelationships between multiple dimensions of childhood socioeconomic circumstances, partnership stability and midlife health.” was completed at Dept. of Statistics, London School of Economics.Google scholar link: https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=NnbJf1IAAAAJ&hl=en&oi=sra
