Statistical Programmer, TEU
Jennifer joined the Translational Epidemiology Unit (TEU) in the Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) in September 2019, where she is using UK Biobank data to investigate the performance of polygenic risk scores for colorectal cancer at different ages.
She has just completed an MSc in Medical Statistics at the University of Leicester (2019), with a 3-month project on the use of flexible parametric models in multistate modelling, and has an MMath from Durham University (2016), where her final project was on interacting particle systems and their use in modelling the spread of epidemics.
From 2016-2018 she worked as a Data Analyst for Aurora Energy Research, responsible for scraping and managing energy market data, and presenting monthly summaries of market events.
Jennifer has a longstanding interest in the applications of maths and statistics to medicine; throughout her 4-year MMath she spent holidays doing temp work for MBRRACE-UK in the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (NPEU) where she witnessed the impact of research on healthcare policy.
