Since 2004, I have been a faculty member in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Washington. Prior to this, I worked as a postdoc in the MRC Biostatistics Unit, under the supervision of David Spiegelhalter, who also advised my PhD work. Going back further, I completed Cambridge's Diploma in Mathematical Statistics, working with Doug Easton. My undergraduate training was in mathematics, at Churchill College, Cambridge.

My research focuses primarily on developing and applying statistical methods for complex disease epidemiology, notably cardiovascular disease. I lead the Analysis Committee for the CHARGE consortium, a large group of investigators studying genetic determinants of heart and aging outcomes; I also serve on the CHARGE steering committee. I am an investigator at UW's Cardiovascular Health Research Unit, am active in the MESA, CHS, SOL and GENEVA studies, and am a member of the External Evaluation Committee for the TEDDY study.

I regularly teach graduate courses in statistics and biostatistics, and short courses in statistical computing, all for audiences of various levels. I also advise several graduate students, often as part of ongoing collaborations, and am active in UW Biostatistics' consulting activities.
