Hilde is a Lecturer in the Department of Statistical Science, UCL. She has a PhD in Statistics from the University of London (Queen Mary and Westfield College) for a thesis which was concerned with stochastic models describing genealogy and genetic differentiation in subdivided populations. She joined UCL in 1994 to work on a consultancy project funded by the Forensic Science Service, studying mitochondrial DNA and its use for forensic identification. She held a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship from 1995 until 1999. Hilde works half-time because of family responsibilities.
