I am a trial statistician and methodologist. My research focuses on developing statistical methods for use in cluster-randomised trials, with a special interest in stepped-wedge trials. I am also a theme leader for the quantifying impacts theme in the Centre for Evaluation.

I completed a PhD at the school in 2017. The PhD focused on statistical methodology to improve the design and analysis of stepped-wedge 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.

Teaching

I organise a short course in cluster randomised trials. I also teach on several other statistics modules.

Research

My research focuses on statistical methodology for cluster randomised trials. Much of my work focuses on the stepped-wedge trial design and developing robust methods of analysis. 

I also work as a statistician on a cluster-randomised trial in China, aiming  to improving aderence to Tuberculosis treatment.
