Research Interests

Ph.D Title: An investigation of the factors which influence children with asthma having asthma exacerbations around the start of the new school year

My general research interests are using statistics and mixed methods to applied situations. For example my PhD will use mixed methods to investigate the factors which influence children with asthma having an unscheduled medical contact in September following the return to school.
