Michael studied mathematics at Cambridge University before specializing into a statistics master's at University College, London. Having recently completed his PhD (focusing on correction methods for measurement error problems) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine he now works as a statistician in the department of visual science at City University. Acutely aware of the importance of communicating statistics, Michael has been a regular contributor to the Significance website since joining as a web editor at its launch in 2010. In his spare time he can usually be found playing board games, computer games, or at his local pub quiz (where he is still waiting for a PhD in statistics to prove useful).

Significance is a bimonthly magazine for anyone interested in statistics and the analysis and interpretation of data. Its aim is to communicate and demonstrate in an entertaining, thought provoking and non-technical way the practical use of statistics in all walks of life, and to show informatively and authoritatively how statistics benefit society. It is published on behalf of the Royal Statistical Society and the American Statistical Association.
