I am a Data Scientist working at the Christie Hospital in Manchester. The Christie is one of Europe's largest specialist cancer hospitals. My work in involves finding ways to use large amounts of data to improve patient care. I provide statistical modelling support to clinicians conducting clinical cancer research.
My interests lie in the analysis of large complex datasets and I am conducting research into text-mining of electronic patient records collaborating with Manchester University. Techniques I use include elastic net regularised regression, Bayesian hierarchical modelling, GAMs, GLMs and parametric and non-parametric survival modelling. I use the R programming language for most of my analysis.
