Jennifer Rogers's Background
I completed my BSc in Mathematics and Statistics in 2006 at Lancaster University. I then remained at Lancaster University for my MSc in Statistics, which I received in 2007. Following this, I moved to the University of Warwick Department of Statistics, where I completed my PhD in Statistics in March 2011, under the supervision of Prof. Jane Hutton. My thesis is titled 'Statistical Models for Censored Point Processes with Cure Fractions' and develops a new class of statistical models that jointly analyse pre-randomisation seizure rates and post-randomisation survival times in clinical trials for epilepsy. The application of my thesis was to assess the benefit of immediate versus deferred treatment in those patients with early epilepsy or single seizures.
I joined the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Department of Medical Statistics as a Research Fellow in May 2011. Since joining the School, my research has mainly focussed on developing and implementing appropriate methodology for the analysis of repeat hospitalisations in patients with heart failure.
I have been a committee member for the Young Statistician's Section of the Royal Statistical Society since 2012 and sat on the President's Nominating Committe in 2013.
I have had a number of media interactions, namely:
- Being interviewed for the BBC Radio Shropshire Breakfast Show (broadcast 6th September 2012) on the role of the statistician in the real world as part of their coverage of the Royal Statistical Society Conference 2012.
- Voice of the Future 2013, hosted by the Select Committee for Science and Technology in the House of Commons, and broadcast by BBC Parliament on 20th March 2013.
- Expert Statistician for Long Live Britain, a series comprising two shows which aimed to raise awareness of three of Britain's biggest preventable conditions. The show undertook the UK's largest ever combined health screening to investigate risks of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and alcoholic liver disease. My role was to compile the statistical results real time, communicate findings on camera and produce UK projections based on these. This was broadcast by BBC1 on 5th August 2013.
- Mystery Map was a two-part series exploring some of the nation’s best-known mysteries and unexplained occurrences. One of the mysteries explored in this episode was spontaneous human combustion and I appeared as an expert statistician, calculating your risk of dying from this phenomenon and comparing that to more probable causes of death. This was broadcast by ITV1 on 27th November 2013.

Jennifer Rogers's Teaching
I have been involved in teaching on Probability, Robust Methods and Advanced Statistical Methods.
I am currently the module leader for Probability.
Jennifer Rogers's Research
My research is focussed on cardiovascular disease and I am currently investigating methods for handling recurrent heart failure hospitalisations and considering alternatives to composite endpoints in randomised clinical trials. I am also developing methodology for the analysis of repeat hospitalisations in those individuals with heart failure where the associated (possibly censored) time to death is a potentially informative dropout time.
