I have previously held an MRC Early Career Centenary Award and an MRC Career Development Award in Biostatistics.
I graduated from the Victoria University of Manchester with a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics with Statistics in June 2003. I was awarded an MRC Studentship to study for a PhD on "Statistical Models of Selection and Causation" under the supervision of Professor Graham Dunn and Professor Andrew Pickles.
I became a Research Associate in October 2006 working on an MRC Methodology Grant investigating the design and methods of analysis of trials of complex interventions in mental health. In October 2009, I was appointed as a Research Fellow after being awarded a 3 year MRC Career Development Award in Biostatistics to continue aspects of this research. As part of this Award, I spent five months in 2011 as a visiting researcher at the Program on Causal Inference in the Departments of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Harvard School of Public Health. I was awarded an MRC Early Career Centenary Award to extend this Fellowship until April 2013.
