Tereza Neocleous ('05) - Lecturer in Statistics, University of Glasgow, UK

Tereza developed an interest in statistics during her undergraduate studies in Cambridge, from where she graduated with a BA in the Mathematical Tripos in 1998, before moving on to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for graduate study. She was awarded her MSc from the University of Illinois in 2000 and her PhD in 2005, with a year’s work experience in actuarial consulting in-between. Her PhD was on quantile regression for censored data under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Portnoy. Tereza returned to Europe to work as a postdoctoral researcher in forensic statistics at the University of Edinburgh before starting her current job as a lecturer at the University of Glasgow in 2007. Her research interests include developing flexible statistical models with applications in forensic chemistry, medicine, speech and the environment. Tereza is a committee member of the Royal Statistical Society’s Section on Statistics and the Law and is actively involved in training forensic scientists in the use of statistics. She is enthusiastic about teaching, curriculum development, outreach activities and building user-friendly statistical software applications for tackling real-world problems.
