Biography

I have a background in physics, engineering and computer science which I use in a clinical research setting. My speciality is computational and statistical modelling of disease progression (called “disease progression modelling”), with a particular focus on Huntington's disease.

Research Summary

I research two main topics: first, I develop new disease progression models; second, I apply these models to patient data to learn new and clinically useful information.


In my current project funded by the Medical Research Council, my principle research question is: can we use disease progression modelling to improve clinical trial design?
