B.A., Mathematics, Oriel College, Oxford University U.K. (1987)

Ph.D., Statistics, Imperial College, London, U.K.  (1995)


I received my BA (Hons.) in Mathematics at the Oriel College of Oxford University, being awarded Open Exhibition on entry to the college. I received my Ph.D. in statistics from the Imperial College of London in 1995, supervised by Jon Wakefield. The focus of my research was on Bayesian parametric and nonparametric methods with applications in medical statistics. From there, I taught at various institutions: Imperial College at London, the University of Bath, and most recently at the University of Kent.
