Biography

My current highest qualification is a BSc (Hons) with First Class Honours majoring in Statistics. I've received summer research scholarships to work with COMPASS (Faculty of Arts) in 2015-2016 and Professor James Curran (Department of Statistics) in 2016-2017.

Thesis

Clinical problem: With the development of the FemFit and its use in the study of the pelvic floor, there is a need to determine what statistical analyses are appropriate to use with the data generated by the FemFit.

Current Focus: The statistical analyses of interest is to investigate methods to validate the repeatability of the FemFit, with a possible extension to use the methodology to detect a change in the pelvic floor muscle pressures.

Outcome: At the end of the project I aim to provide the Pelvic Floor research group with a methodology to process the data generated by the FemFit and statistical analyses suitable to use with the FemFit.
