Dr Iryna Schlackow

MMath DPhil Oxf


Iryna joined St Hilda’s in October 2023 as a lecturer in mathematics (statistics). She is a senior statistical analyst based in the Student Data Management and Analysis team of the University’s Student Registry.

Prior to that, Iryna worked as a heath economist and a statistician in several departments of the Medical Sciences Division (NDPH, NDM). And before that she was an MMath, and then a DPhil, student… at St. Hilda’s!

Over the years, Iryna had also been a pure mathematics lecturer at a variety of Oxford colleges and is delighted to be back.

Iryna’s current teaching interests lie in statistics and probability, including papers from the 1st and 2nd year syllabus, statistics for medical sciences and the R statistical software. In the past Iryna had also taught most papers from the pure mathematics syllabus and gave workshops on LaTeX.

In her current role, Iryna uses statistical methods to address and report on questions related to all stages of student life, including undergraduate and graduate admissions, on-course performance and information coming from university-run surveys.

In her previous life as a health science researcher, Iryna was interested in modelling long-term outcomes and socioeconomic aspects of chronic diseases, as well as infectious disease outbreaks, with a particular emphasis on using large clinical trials and/or routinely collected data.
