## 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.
