Dr Katy Morgan
MA MSci PhD MSc
in Medical Statistics
One of my main research interests is in the statistical methodology of clinical trials. I hold a MRC Skills Development Fellowship, during which I will be looking at ways of improving the statistical efficiency of randomised controlled trials through their design, focusing on trials that look for a difference in slopes over time and series of N-of-1 trials.
I studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, and completed a PhD in particle physics at Durham University. I then retrained as a medical statistician through an NIHR research methods fellowship. As part of the fellowship I obtained an MSc in Medical Statistics from LSHTM and worked at the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit, Queen Mary University of London. I joined the School as a research fellow in 2014.
I give lectures on the Frequentist Statistical Inference module of the Medical Statistics MSc. I also help in various practical sessions including those for Statistical Computing (Stata).
