Dr Samuel Touchard

This year, I will be teaching Games, Decisions and Behaviour (ST234) in term 1, Applied Statistical Modelling (ST404), with Dr Paul Skerritt in term 2, and Statistical Laboratory (ST121) in term 2. Other modules that I have taught or been involved with in the past few years are Designed Experiments (ST305/410) and An Introduction to Statistical Practice (ST952).

Before joining Warwick four years ago, I worked as a Teaching Associate at the University of Bristol in the Department of Mathematics. I have also previously worked as a medical statistician, investigating potential biomarkers in dementia, especially in Alzheimer’s disease.

My research background is Bayesian Statistics. My PhD thesis “Bayesian Inference of gene-miRNA regulatory networks” consisted in building, via MCMC, a Bayesian graphical model with integrated biological information that infers a regulatory network of functional interactions between miRNAs and their mRNA targets.
