Basic Info

I am a Precision Medicine PhD student predicting outcomes in inflammatory bowel disease.

  • 🎈 Member of Vallejos group
  • 🏢 Working at MRC Human Genetics Unit, The University of Edinburgh
  • 🏠 Living in Edinburgh, Scotland
  • 😄 Pronouns: he, him, his
  • 📄 My CV


I am interested in predicting outcomes in inflammatory bowel disease and developing methods of stratifying patients to optimise treatment. As such, I specialise in methods of survival analysis, risk prediction, tool development, and bridging the divide between clinicians and statisticians.

I am supervised by Dr Catalina Vallejos and Professor Charlie Lees and financially supported by the Medical Research Council (MRC).

My talks repository contains PDF files of slides from presentations I have given.

I maintain some R packages:

About Me

After completing a Mathematics undergraduate degree from Aberystwyth university, where I primarily focused on statistics and pure mathematics, I studied an MSc in Statistics for Computational Biology at the same institution. I am now a PhD student in the Vallejos group led by Dr Catalina Vallejos at the University of Edinburgh. I am a student on the Precision Medicine doctoral training programme. I have also worked on DECOVID as an analyst.

My personal interests include fitness and all things tech (especially PC hardware 🖥️).
