I qualified in medicine at the University of Saint-Etienne, France and worked as a clinician before entering epidemiological research. I completed an MSc in epidemiology in Paris and a PhD in epidemiology at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Lyon, France. Before joining the School in July 2002, I spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow in Montréal (Canada) in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Unit of Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique - Institut Armand-Frappier. I worked mainly on cancer risks associated with occupational and environmental exposures, and on developments in methodology.
I have been involved in distance learning and various face-to-face courses at the School both on the Medical Statistics MSc and the Epidemiology MSc. Since 2006, I have been co-organiser with Professor Michel Coleman of our annual short course on cancer survival (http://www.lshtm.ac.uk/ncdeu/cancersurvival/course2010/index.htm).
I was project organiser for the distance learning MSc Epidemiology: Principles and Practice until September 2007. I was one the two Departmental Research Degree Co-ordinators for NCDE in 2008-11.
My current research is centred on cancer survival, as co-principal investigator (with Michel Coleman) in two successive five-year Cancer Research UK Programme Grants (2005-2015). We are carrying out a wide range of projects to quantify, describe and explain patterns and trends in cancer survival by socio-economic group, geographic area and ethnicity, as well as extending the methodology and tools for survival analysis, in collaboration with many research partners in the UK and around the world.
