Elinor graduated in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Warwick before completing a PhD in Probability Theory at the University of Manchester. Her thesis examined the large deviations of random walks and Lévy processes. Prior to joining UCL, Elinor worked as a Research Associate in Genetic Epidemiology at the University of Leicester and as a Statistician at the Univeristy of Reading.
