My first degree was in Social Administration from LSE, after which I gained an MSc (Stats) at Brunel University, where I also worked as a statistics lecturer. My PhD at LSE was based on a randomised controlled trial (RCT) of women having access to their maternity care records. From 1981-1996 I was at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit in Oxford, holding the roles of social statistician, trials statistician, and later Director of the Perinatal Trials Service. During this period I was involved in a large number of RCTs and systematic reviews. I continued this applied research after moving to LSHTM in 1997, broadening from the perinatal field to also include trials in liver transplantation, intensive care, children with diabetes, adolescents, and educational and nutritional interventions.  Between 2005 and 2005 I worked half-time as professor of Evidence-informed policy and practice in the Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Coordination Centre in the Institute of Education.

Research

-: CLEANED :-

My main interest as a statistician is in randomised controlled trials (RCTs). As a triallist I work with a highly experienced team in the MSD and the LSHTM CTU to design, co-ordinate, analyse and report a number of RCTs. Currently these trials include perinatal and child health trials in the UK, Gambia and India, intensive care in the UK, and school-based trials in the UK, Uganda, Gambia and India.

My methodological research includes cluster RCTs, data monitoring committees, reporting of trials, and qualitative research on the views of people participating in trials.
