Mei Sum Chan


Former DPhil Student

Mei investigated biological ages as means of expressing the effects of modifiable biomarkers for chronic diseases. This involved the use of several statistical methods to characterise biological ageing pathways and biomarker associations across multiple organ systems, and was intended to aid in designing interventions for earlier disease diagnosis and targeted treatments. Her research was supported by a Nuffield Department of Population Health Scholarship.

She is a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, a Chartered Statistician and holds a Masters in Mathematics, Operations Research, Statistics and Economics (MORSE) from the University of Warwick. Prior to joining the department, she worked as a Medical Statistician within an industry-academia collaboration based in University College London, investigating socioeconomic inequalities in life expectancy with and without multimorbidity.
