Felicity graduated with a First Class BSc(Hons) in Mathematics with Statistics and Operational Research at Queen’s University Belfast in 2012. She was awarded the Hughes Insurance Prize for the final year module Stochastic Processes, and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) prize for the highest marks in the BSc degree. Currently she is in her second year of a PhD program looking at the cost-effectiveness of novel biomarkers for prevention of cardiovascular disease. After completion of two systematic reviews she is now working with the FINRISK97 dataset in collaboration with the BiomarCaRE consortium to produce a cost-effectiveness model. Her research interests include stochastic processes, Markov modelling, health economic evaluation and cardiovascular disease.
