Angela received her BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics in 1998 and subsequently completed her doctorate on the subject of joint modeling longitudinal and time-to-event data with Profs Peter Diggle and Robin Henderson from the University of Lancaster in 2001. She carried out post-doctoral research with Dr Ian White at the MRC Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge and was appointed in 2006 to University Lecturer in Biostatistics in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care, Cambridge.
Angela’s research interests are centered on the development and application of statistical methods for advancing epidemiological research. She has focused on developing statistical methodology for handling measurement error, using repeated measures of risk factors, missing data problems, multiple imputation, risk prediction and meta-analysis. Her applied research has focused on cardiovascular research with colleagues in the CEU and birth outcomes in collaboration with Professor Gordon Smith, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Cambridge.
Angela is the academic director of the MPhil in Epidemiology, University of Cambridge. She presents lectures on introductory statistics, descriptive statistics, strategies for analysis, analysis of clustered data and repeated measures, missing data, demographic methods and risk prediction. She has supervised a number of MPhil and PhD students.
