Lead Statistician and senior researcher at the Centre for Primary Care in the Institute for Population Health


I have a first class honours degree from Newcastle and a PhD from Manchester. I worked for Beecham’s Research Laboratories for one year, and Marconi Space and Defence for two years, before joining the University of Manchester in 1981. Up until 2000, I was statistician at the Hester Adrian Research Centre (HARC), in the School of Education. HARC was a Centre dedicated to research for people with learning disabilities, and whilst there I developed strong links with other units in Education, including Special Education and the Centre for Human Communication and Deafness, and developed a number of collaborative projects on services for Deaf people, and on children with speech and language difficulties. 

I moved to the Centre for Primary Care in 2000 and became leader of the statistic team in 2004. I head a group of four statisticians who provide support to all research projects and post-graduate students in the Centre.
