Jordan Jarod Hood

I am a Postgraduate Research (PhD) student at the STOR-i Centre for Doctorial Training at Lancaster University. The focus of my research is on advancing outbreak detection via Bayesian spatio-temporal epidemic models for low prevalence SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) inference across the United Kingdom within a TensorFlow Probability framework. Previously, I have worked internationally as a business analyst, achieved a Masters in Statistics and Operational Research (STOR) at Lancaster University, and graduated from Reading University with a First-Class degree in Mathematics and the 2020 Statistical Project Prize. My interests are in Bayesian Markov Switching Models and stochastic simulation methods.
