I am an MRC Skills Development Fellow within the Alcohol Group of the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR). I joined the University of Sheffield in 2012, as an EPSRC Research Associate within the School of Mathematics and Statistics, and moved to ScHARR in October 2015, as an NIHR Research Methods Fellow in statistics within the Design Trials and Statistics section.

Before joining the University of Sheffield, I held a Visiting Assistant Professorship in Mathematics at the University of California-Riverside. I hold a BSc in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, an MSc and a PhD. (2010) in Mathematics in from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and an MSc in Statistics with Medical applications (2019) from the University of Sheffield.

Research interests

My current research focuses on spatial mathematics and statistics, and their applications to alcohol research. I am particularly interested in the spatial epidemiology of alcohol availability, consumption, and harm through the analysis of routinely collected data.

Other research interests include the development of hospital performance measures relating to the quality and safety of care offered to patients, based on the analysis of large routine observational data, as well as the development and review of statistical methods in clinical trials.

My work in pure mathematics focuses on commutative and Homological Algebra, with connections to Representation Theory, Algebraic Geometry and Singularity Theory.

Current projects:

  • EEACH:  The spatial Epidemiology of Alcohol Availability, Consumption and Harm (MRS Skills Development fellowship).  This project aims to understand the public health impact of geographical alcohol availability in the UK.  It proposes to investigate the spatial relationship between availability, harm and consumption, and in particular, to characterise the spatial aspects of the relationship between demographics and outlets that are responsible for harm and problematic consumption.
  • Safety and Quality indicators for hospital performance (NIHR Research Methods fellowship).

Teaching interests

Since 2002, I have taught 8 quarters and 22 semesters of university level Mathematics. I have lectured mostly in Pure Mathematics (Calculus, Linear Algebra, Game theory, Optimization theory, Differential Equations and Mathematical Analysis). In 2014, I lectured in China for the Sheffield Financial Mathematics joint program with Nanjing Tech University, and mentored for the Sheffield Thesis Writing Mentoring program.

Most recently, I have contributed to teaching Statistics for the Masters in Public Health and the MBChB programme (including project supervision), and welcome further opportunities to supervise PhD and MSc projects within my research interests (broadly interpreted).
