I am Professor of Biostatistics and MRC Programme Leader in Statistical Genomics. I hold a joint appointment in the Department of Statistics and the Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford. I am a Faculty Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute. I have broad research interests in the theory, methods, and applications of decision analysis, probabilistic modelling, and statistical machine learning in medical research.
