I am British-Sudanese and grew up in Khartoum. After completing my undergraduate degree in Maths at the University of Cambridge, I enrolled on a master's course in Statistics at Imperial College London. During my time there, I became interested in biostatistics and the applications of statistical analysis to medicine and healthcare. This culminated in my master's thesis on the use of multiple kernel clustering approaches on multi-view patient data to identify sub-categories of diseases. Through my DPhil, I particularly hope to explore applications of data science to health in low and middle-income countries.
Outside of my studies, I am a big fan of sports including American football and baseball.
