My research is focussed on Bayesian stochastic modelling, inference and assessment across the interface of statistics,

epidemiology, actuarial mathematics and life sciences. I have an interdisciplinary research record, with involvement

in cross-sectional projects concerning statistical modelling in areas including critical illness insurance, epidemics,

health and morbidity. My work also involves collaborations with researchers in life and biomedical sciences. I have

supervised a number of PhD students and PDRAs to completion and I currently supervise PhD candidates in topics

including Bayesian analysis and model assessment in epidemiology, morbidity and mortality.
