I graduated from ISUP (Statistical Institute of the Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris) in 2006, and have since worked for different medical research institutions in Thailand and the UK. I joined LSHTM International Statistics and Epidemiology Group (ISEG) in 2013, then the Medical Statistics Department (MSD) in 2015 to conduct a PhD on missing data in economic evaluation. I am currently working with MSD and ISEG on the evaluation of school-based interventions.

Teaching

I teach on various MSc modules (Analysis and Design of Research Studies, Clinical Trials, Statistical Methods in Epidemiology) and short courses (Advanced Course in Epidemiological Analysis). I am a module co-organiser for DANES (Design and Analysis of Epidemiological Studies).

Research

I am currently working on school-based intervention trials, and interested in developping the design and statistical methods for their analysis. Before this, I worked with the ACT Consortium at LSHTM, looking at improving the use of artemisinin-based combination therapy for malaria, then conducted a PhD on missing data sensitivity analysis in cost-effectiveness evaluation. I have a general interest in statistical methodology, particularly applied methods to improve the design and analysis of clinical trials. I have worked in different medical areas, such as HIV, primary care, psychiatry, palliative care, and multiple sclerosis.
