About me

I am a Statistics PhD student at Warwick under the supervision of Professor Jane Hutton.

Current work

My current research is focused on the Multicentre study of early Epilepsy and Single Seizures (MESS) study, in which patients diagnosed with epilepsy were subjected to randomized controlled trial policies of immediate versus deferred treatment. We are interested in providing a prognosis for the patients and clinicians from the study, and propose to apply Survival Analysis methods under Stochastic Processes models.
