Biography

I joined the University of Portsmouth in 2015 after qualifying in Social Statistics (Applied Statistics) from the University of Southampton and working as a Lecturer in Medical Statistics in the Faculty of medicine (Primary Care and Population Sciences). Initial studies include a degree in Economics and Computer Sciences in 2005 at the University of Kinshasa with subsequent return to academia in 2008 to study for an MSc in Social Statistics followed by a PhD at the University of Southampton.

Dr Kandala believes that “It is by using big data that we can answer many health related questions of today and of the future.”
