I graduated with a First Class BSc (Hons) in Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research at Queen’s University Belfast in 2011. An interest in the application of statistics for research and for the analysis of epidemiological studies led me to take on a PhD in the Centre for Public Health, Queen’s University Belfast. I am currently in my third year of my PhD on Type 1 diabetes. During my PhD I have worked on two datasets; the Northern Ireland Childhood Diabetes Register and the Clinical Practice Research Database and have also conducted two systematic reviews.
