I joined the school in 2014 to study for my PhD. The PhD focused on statistical methodology to improving the design and analysis of stepped-wedge cluster-randomised trials. I am now a research fellow at the school, and my research focuses on developing statistical methods for use in pragmatic clinical trials, focusing on cluster-randomised trials. 

Previously, I worked at the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL as a trial statistician, mostly in the area of HIV research.

I hold an MSc in Medical Statistics from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Birmingham.

Research

In my PhD I studied improved methods for the design and analysis of stepped-wedge cluster-randomised trials, and indentified efficiency improvements and more robust analysis methods.

I am continuing to work in this area, as well as exploring methodology for cluster-randomised trials more generally.

I am interested in a broad range of statistical methodology including mixed-effect models, generalised estimating equations and non-parametric methods.
