Louise becomes a Doctor!


Louise Lloyd, one of our Euphonium players, graduated yesterday with a PhD in Statistics from the University of Southampton. For the last 5 years, as well as squeezing in work, and the all-important band engagements, she has managed to find the time to research the analysis of road accident data. Louise has kindly offered to have a long and in-depth conversation about her thesis ‘Modelling Trends in Road Accident Frequency – Bayesian Inference for Rates with Unknown Exposure’, but has yet to find a volunteer! In the meantime she now has no more excuses for not practising the Euphonium part for Bohemian Rhapsody!

We offer Louise hearty congratulations for this achievement.
