From 1999-2001 I studied mathematics at King's College Cambridge. I then moved to Leicester to study medical statistics. After receiving a MSc in Medical Statistics I moved to London to begin a PhD at LSHTM under the supervision of James Carpenter, which was awarded in 2007. For the next 7 years I worked in Australia, beginning at the NHMRC Clinical Trials Unit at Sydney University, then moving to the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in Melbourne, followed by positions at Monash University and the University of Melbourne. In 2014, I returned to LSHTM to work with James Carpenter, in a position with the Farr Institute, London, investigating statistical methods for addressing causal questions using electronic health records.

Teaching

I teach the Probability module in the MSc in Medical Statistics as well as contributing to a number of short courses. I also co-ordinate statistical modules for the MSc in Data Science for Research in Health and Biomedicine, at the Farr Institute of Health Informatics, London. 

Research

I currently hold an MRC project grant to investigate methods for dealing with missing data within propensity score analyses, with a focus on data taken from electronic health records. We are investigating how best to apply multiple imputation within this context, and exploring alternative missing data approaches.
