Before rejoining the University of Nottingham to lead the statistical analysis for the WISE study, Adrian previously worked as a Data Analyst at the University of Nottingham on a research project funded by The European Foundation for Alcohol Research. He has extensive research and teaching experience in the university sector and also has private sector consultancy experience in the areas of statistics and economics. His university teaching experience includes providing short courses at graduate level as well as working as an Associate Tutor on postgraduate and undergraduate modules covering topics such as statistical modelling and analysis, mathematics, and SPSS training classes.
Adrian undertook his PhD in Social Statistics at the University of Manchester; thesis title "Modelling the intergenerational transmission of socioeconomic status between individuals over the life course". The thesis was an empirical assessment of the degree to which differential attainment of socioeconomic status in the form of occupational earnings evolves over the life course for members of the 1958 National Child Development Study birth cohort and how their socioeconomic background in childhood influences their development.
Previously, Adrian obtained an MSc in Statistics from Warwick University (dissertation entitled "Predicting one-year response in HIV clinical trials" in conjunction with GlaxoSmithKline), an MSc in Economics from Trinity College Dublin (dissertation entitled "Accidents on Irish Roads from 2000 to 2004; An Econometric Analysis" in conjunction with the National Roads Authority) and a joint honours BA in Mathematics and Economics from Trinity College Dublin.
