I have worked at Department of Biostatistics and Department of Eye and Vision Science at University of Liverpool since 2012, working closely with ophthalmologists fromClinical Research Eye Centre at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust. I am a statistician with broad interest of application and development of statistical methods for ophthalmology and vision science. I use tools from hierarchical modelling, mixed effect models and multivariate models to address problems of disease prediction and classification using big data: imaging data, clinical data and longitudinally collected data. I am particularly interested in developments of statistical methods in the following three areas: 1) feature selection and statistical classification of retinal disease stages using imaging data, 2) multivariate modelling and classification for longitudinally collected observational clinical data; and 3) information measures for evaluation of surrogate and predictive biomarkers.
