Biography

Lucinda completed a BSc Mathematics followed by an MSc Operational Research and Applied Statistics, both at Cardiff University.

Lucinda previously held a post in the Institute of Applied Health Research at the University of Birmingham, where she was employed under an NIHR Research Methods Fellowship. During this time, she completed an MPH in Public Health and worked on projects focused within the fields of prognostic and diagnostic research.

She continues to work in the field of prognosis research and is completing her PhD part time in the application and development of statistical methods for prognostic modelling.

Research and scholarship

Lucinda's research interests lie in the application and development of statistical methods for prognostic modelling.
