Kristina Krieger

I am a Health Data Science PhD Student within the CHICAS group, completing a project under the supervision of Dr Anastasia Ushakova and Prof. Jo Knight.

My project is in collaboration with Lancashire and South Cumbria National Health Service (NHS) Foundation Trust (LSCFT) and involves using/developing Causal Inference methods in order to identify the driving forces behind patients' mental health needs and outcomes. My research interests lie mostly within the field of applied statistics, and I enjoy using methods with a strong spatio-temporal, longitudinal and inferential focus.

Prior to beginning my PhD within the CHICAS research group, I completed a Bachelor's in Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Strathclyde, before undertaking a Master's in Data Science at Lancaster University. During this time, I had the opportunity to further explore my interests in Health Data Science through my research project on the identification of common risk factors between Leptospirosis and Chikungunya within urban areas of Salvador, Brazil.
