I have worked in the Statistical Consulting Centre since 2004, having completed a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in Applied Statistics at the University of Melbourne. I received my PhD in 2010. The topic of my PhD thesis was the performance of multiple hypothesis testing procedures in the presence of dependence, supervised by Professor Peter Hall.
My work in the Centre has included projects involving survival analysis, survey design and analysis, bioinformatics, linear mixed modelling and data mining, and a diverse range of topics: from dentistry to traffic simulation to carbon trading and fire management. I provide regular assistance to research students at the university and medical researchers throughout Melbourne Heath. I have extensive experience with the statistical packages R, Minitab, Genstat, and SPSS.
I am an Accredited Statistician (AStat) with the Statistical Society of Australia.
