My Education and Experience

Here is a brief synopsis of my education and experience to date.
For more detailed information please download my curriculum vitae (in Adobe pdf format)

In 1989 I graduated with a B.Sc. from University College, Cork in the Republic of Ireland. While an undergraduate I worked in the Statistics and Computer Science departments.

After taking a break for a year (as a trainee actuary) I went to the University of Toronto to pursue graduate studies in the Department of Statistics. In 1991 I received my M.Sc. and, under the supervision of Nancy Reid, I received my Ph.D in 1995.

Immediately after finishing my Ph.D. I took up a post-doctoral research position in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford. While at Oxford I worked with Anthony Davison and David Hinkley. I was also a lecturer in statistics at Lady Margaret Hall

In 1996 I went to l'École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland where I worked in Anthony Davison's Chair of Statistics which is part of the Department of Mathematics.

In August 1998, I took up a tenure track position as assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Concordia University in Montreal. Finally on July 1, 2001 I came to McMaster University as an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. On July 1, 2007 I was granted tenure and promoted to my present rank of associate professor. Since July 1, 2005 I have also been an associate member of the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
