Research summary

I am a DPhil student with Gil McVean. I am currently working on Mendelian Randomisation, a method that uses naturally occurring genetic variations as instrumental variables in order to investigate the causal role of an intermediate phenotype on a disease. I take a Bayesian approach and try to apply methods coming from econometrics, regression analysis and graphical models.
