I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Statistics and Computer Science, followed by an MSc in Statistics from the University of Sheffield. On completion of my PhD entitled `Modelling familial cancer risk´ and awarded by the University of Manchester I accepted a post-doctoral position at the University of Cambridge. In 2001 I returned to Sheffield to join the Mathematical Modelling and Genetic Epidemiology Group based at the Medical School. In 2009 I moved to the Health Services Research section in ScHARR.
