Personal profile


Hui Guo is a Reader in Biostatistics and Lead of the Centre for Biostatistics, University of Manchester. She studied for a PhD in Statistics and worked as a research associate at Cambridge University.

Her PhD research entitled "Statistical Causal Inference and Propensity Analysis" (supervised by Professor Philip Dawid) was within decision-theoretic framework. Her postdoctoral research (supervised by Dr Chris Wallace) was on development and applications of statistical methodologies with the aim of understanding the genetics and mechanisms of common complex disease.

Hui's research focuses on statistical causal inference from observational studies. Her current work is on identification of causal genes of clinical outcomes from large-scale studies. She is also interested in optimising predictive models and investigating genetic causal pathways and/or networks of diseases using multi-omics data.
