"My work aims to model the risk of psychosocial stressors on putative biomarkers of cognitive decline. My current project uses data from the UK Biobank, where I am looking at self-report measures of psychological trauma, in conjunction with brain volume outcomes from over 14k individuals. This for an Early Career Researcher still awaiting her viva is quite a humbling privilege!
I use the 32GB desktop on the Data Portal to work on the model, using mainly STATA and R for various modelling approaches, including machine learning. The computational speed is suitable for the project, and I am happy that it allows me to work on the data when out of office."
