Student education

I have been the module leader of several postgraduate and undergraduate statistics modules. Most of these modules have been lecture courses, in which I have taught a variety of topics, including statistical inference, linear regression, survival analysis, multilevel modelling, and programming in R. I have also supervised projects on the MSc programmes Data Science and Analytics, Statistics, Medical Statistics, and Statistics with Applications to Finance.
