Phuong is a part-time DPhil student based at the Big Data Institute. She is investigating whether unsupervised and semi-supervised computational methods can be used on electronic health records to identify and understand temporal change-points, in particular whether they can help to distinguish between artefacts caused by e.g. changes in data collection methods versus real epidemiological trends.
She also currently works as a Medical Statistician in the Nuffield Department of Medicine which she joined in 2012. She has a BSc in Mathematics from Warwick University, an MSc in Applied Statistics from Oxford University, and worked for several years as a software developer before joining academia.
