Longitudinal data analysis
Longitudinal data analysis is needed in any study where subjects are followed up over time.
Our methodological work in this area includes joint modelling of multivariate repeated measurement sequences and time-to-event outcomes, and hierarchically specified models with latent Gaussian graphical structure and non-standard sampling distributions.
Applied projects in this area include real-time monitoring of progression to renal failure in primary and secondary care patients (with Royal Salford Hospital), developing causal models of executive behaviour in pre-school children (with the Department of Psychology) and analysing longitudinal studies of bipolar disorder (with the Spectrum Centre).
