• Dr Rhian Daniel

    Reader in Medical Statistics, Division of Population Medicine/Cardiff University

  • Having studied mathematics at Cambridge University, Rhian completed an MSc in Medical Statistics and a PhD in missing data methods at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She has since focused on methods for learning about cause-effect relationships from observational data, first as a post-doc and lecturer at LSHTM, and since 2017 as Reader in Medical Statistics at Cardiff University.

    She is interested in situations, such as when disentangling path-specific causal effects, where standard regression is valid only under very restrictive assumptions, and thus modern concepts and methods from the causal inference school are especially useful.

    Her current work on high-dimensional mediation is funded by a Sir Henry Dale fellowship from the Welcome Trust and the Royal Society.
