About me

I am a lecturer in statistics and data analytics and my research is associated with the Centre for Transport and Society.  I have qualifications in mathematics, social policy and transport studies and I have work experience in statistics, auditing and research.  I would consider myself to be a quantitative analyst and I particularly enjoy analysing data which provides insights into human behaviour.

Projects:

Clean Air Discovery & Innovation project - "Characterising Changing Travel Patterns in the COVID-19 era"

West of England E-scooter Trial Evaluation

Work package lead for bus data in the national evaluation of the Transforming Cities Fund.


Area of expertise

My PhD involved developing new methods for analysing large datasets to provide insights into travel behaviour.  I used methods including Functional Linear Models, Model Based Clustering and Sequence Alignment and applied all of the methods to real-world data from the road network in Greater Manchester.  I have experience in processing and analysing data from loop detectors and Bluetooth detectors on the road network. 

After my PhD, I was awarded an ESRC Post Doctoral Fellowship.  I used this to gain insights into multi-day travel behaviour using data from a range of third party partners by adapting methods developed during my PhD.

I also have experience in estimating the benefits of cycling and walking schemes (using WebTAG) and undertaking monitoring work on large funding projects for cycling.
