Dr Samuel Touchard

This year, I will be teaching Games, Decisions and Behaviour (ST222) in term 1, Designed Experiments with Advanced Topics (ST305/410), in term 2, and Statistical Laboratory (ST121) in term 2.

Before joining Warwick three 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.
