Short Biography

My research interests are in developing statistical methods for use in epidemiology, focusing on disease mapping, and studies that investigate the effects of air pollution on human health. The aim in disease mapping is to quantify the spatial pattern in disease risk over a city or country, as well as determining whether there has been any increase or reduction in the risk over time. These spatio-temporal risk maps allow public health researchers to identify the areas at highest risk of disease, so that health resources can be targeted accordingly.
