Rebecca came to the Centre for Multilevel Modelling in 2007 as a Research Assistant, after graduating from her Masters in Statistics. She became a Research Student in 2009, staying in the Centre. In October 2013 she will be leaving the Centre to take up the post of Research Fellow with AQMeN (Applied Quantitative Methods Network) at the University of Edinburgh.

Besides assisting MLwiN users in her technical support role, Rebecca has contributed to some of the MLwiN documentation as a co-author of the Manual supplement for version 2.1, and through writing some of the online documentation (e.g. the new features in MLwiN 2.18). She was also involved in a supervisory capacity in the translation of the MLwiN manuals from Word to LaTeX. With Fiona Steele, Paul Clarke and Harvey Goldstein, she tested that the weights facility in MLwiN operates correctly, via a simulation study.
