Dr Emmanuel Ogundimu

Senior Lecturer

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

I completed my PhD research in the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick in April 2013, and worked briefly as a Research Fellow in the department before joining the Centre for Statistics in Medicine, University of Oxford for a 2-year research position. I joined Northumbria University in October 2015 as a Lecturer in Statistics. I was an honorary NDORMS departmental research fellow in Medical Statistics at the University of Oxford between November 2015 and October 2017.

 In addition to holding a fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, I have taught and supported teaching activities from the foundation programme to the MSc programme in my current role. I led the development of the MSc programme in Statistics at Northumbria (I developed three module specifications out of the four new modules added to the programme, the programme specification, assessment schedule, and contributed to the programme handbook). I am currently the programme leader for the MSc Statistics course. I also hold a visiting position at the faculty of Medical Sciences, Newcastle University.
