DPUK Data Scientist
- DPhil Student
I am a data scientist working for the Dementias Platform UK, particularly working with cohorts to get imaging and genetics data uploaded to the platform.
I am also close to finishing my DPhil in the Department of Psychiatry, with Professor John Gallacher as my supervisor.
I developed an online Automatic Item Generator (Corvus) for Ravens-like items, principally for use in epidemiological studies. Amongst other things, I have used Corvus to run a study looking at the learning effect of patterns in cognitive tests, as apposed to memorisation effects, which indicated that Corvus maintains validity in repeat testing, unlike traditional tests — which is important for longitudinal testing, particularly as memory effects have been shown to last up to 14 years.
