I am a third year PhD student in Statistics at the University of Warwick. I am part of the OxWaSP programme. I am interested in Applied Statistics, particularly as applied in the Social Sciences. I am currently working on a project analysing data from applications to undergraduate statistics courses in the Statistics department at Warwick, using a decision theory framework. I am supervised by Dr Julia Brettschneider and Dr Anastasia Papavasiliou.
I am an R enthusiast. I am the author, along with Prof David Firth of the BradleyTerryScalable
package, which is developed on GitHub and available on CRAN. I am co-organiser of the Oxford R User Group and also a member of the Warwick R User Group and R-Ladies London.
Prior to the PhD, my academic path has taken me from a BA in Mathematics and Philosophy (University of Oxford), through an MA in History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (University of Toronto), an MPhil in Mathematics Education (University of Cambridge) and an MSc in Applied Statistics (University of Oxford). I also have a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics, have taught at secondary school, and worked in market research.

I am an R enthusiast and enjoy developing packages.
BradleyTerryScalable
: An R package to fit the Bradley-Terry model to large and potentially sparse datasets. The package is developed on GitHub and available on CRAN. The development documentation is available here.
EMK
: A personal package, available on GitHub, to collect various functions I’ve written that I find useful in a number of settings.
