Biography

I did my Bachelor degree here at the University of Auckland in Statistics. After graduating in 2016, I decided to keep exploring my interest of statistics.  I obtained my Honours and Masters degree in Statistics from the University of Auckland until 2018.  Then I joined the Department of Statistics as a PhD student in July 2019, under the supervision of Dr Claudia Liliana Rivera Rodriguez and Professor Thomas Lumley.

Research | Current

My research project aims to develop a new method for the analysis of correlated data by combining the theory of conditional likelihood and the theory of mixed models. I often aim to understand fundamental two-phase studies and correlated data.
