Dr Kathryn Turnbull

Research student

Lancaster University




United Kingdom


Prior to joining STOR-i I obtained a degree in Mathematics (MMath) at Durham University. During my undergraduate studies I covered a range of mathematics, including some statistics modules. For my final year project, I studied techniques for classifying objects according to their 2D shapes. In 2013 I took part in the STOR-i summer internship where I worked on a project entitled ‘Modeling droughts with extreme value theory', and in the final years of my degree I completed two summer internships with Shell. These internships were an excellent opportunity to see what research involves and how statistics is utilised in industry.  

I am currently a final year PhD student at STOR-i, having completed the MRes in 2016. My PhD is focused on methodology for network analysis. I am supervised by Chris Nemeth (Lancaster), Simon Lunagomez (Lancaster), Matt Nunes (Bath) and Tyler McCormick (Washington).
