I provide general statistical input to research projects undertaken by the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre Hearing Health Theme and the Division of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work. I also work on randomised controlled trials and large-scale observational studies in a variety of clinical fields including mental health, rheumatology and dermatology.  

Prior to my current role, I completed a PhD at the University of Manchester. This focussed on statistical methodology for the analysis of observational data, specifically primary care databases, to identify and evaluate markers associated with differential treatment response. My research was funded by the NIHR Manchester Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit and supervised by Prof Richard Emsley, Prof Graham Dunn and Prof William Dixon. I am continuing to develop my methodological research. 

I am the unit lead for the Statistics module in the postgraduate MClinRes Clinical Research ran by the Division of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work. Previously I have been a teaching assistant for the Fundamentals of Epidemiology and Biostatistics course units on the Master of Public Health online course. I also supervise master’s level dissertation students.
