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. I was elected a Fellow of the American Statistical Association in 2018.

My research focuses primarily on developing and applying statistical methods for complex disease epidemiology, notably cardiovascular disease. I lead the Data Coordinating Center and Analysis Committee for the NHLBI's TOPMed project, which is collecting and analyzing whole-genome sequence data on participants in existing NHLBI studies. This group is housed at UW's Genetic Analysis Center, where I also have an active U01 grant. I chair the Analysis Committee for the CHARGE consortium, a large group of investigators studying genetic determinants of heart and aging outcomes through cohort studies. I am an investigator at UW's Cardiovascular Health Research Unit. Outside UW, I serve as a member of the External Evaluation Committee for the TEDDY study, and on the Observational Study Monitoring Board of the Pediatric Cardiac Genomics Consortium. I am also a statistical editor for the Journal of the American Heart Association.

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.
