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.

Teaching

I have been involved in distance learning and various face-to-face courses at the School on both the Epidemiology MSc and the Medical Statistics MSc.

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.

Research

My current research is centred on the inequalities in cancer care and cancer survival, with a wide range of projects to identify the mechanisms underlying these inequalities by socio-economic level, 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.
