Glenna Nightingale née Evans
I graduated from St Andrews University in 2013 with a PhD in Statistics. My research focus was on spatial point process models in a Bayesian context. Since then, I have gained experience in modelling time to event data (in a Bayesian context), constructing R packages, analysing longitudinal data and spatiotemporal data, construction of complex survey weights, factor analysis and machine learning. I possess broad skills covering both Bayesian and Frequentist statistical modelling, and have developed custom models that are perfectly suited to the task at hand rather than using off-the-shelf models.
I also collaborate with other Statisticians and Epidemiologists– for example on projects that involve Area Interaction Point Process Models, Log Gaussian Cox Processes, LMM, ARIMA, HMM, GLMs and COVID-19 surveillance.
My hobbies include playing piano and building R Shiny apps for data visualization
