My Work

I manage a design, analysis and reporting service for the UK system for plant variety assessment and registration in various crops. This work is funded by the Scottish Goverment, DEFRA and APHA, BSPB & AHDB. I also undertake a number of other research projects, as well as statistical consultancy for SASA.


I studied mathematics at Lancaster University, where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in 2015. During my degree I became interested in statistics, and started work as a statistician at BioSS in 2017. I have since completed a Master's degree in statistics, graduating in 2020.
