Research interests:

I am the main Statistical Consultant for Biomedical Science and my work is primarily focussed on pre-clinical studies. I have previously researched subgroup analysis in late stage clinical trials (2 publications in progress) and early phase adaptive clinical trial designs for biomarkers (1 publication). This work was carried out whilst I was based at AstraZeneca. Prior to that I studied for a PhD based on genetic epidemiology here at SOMAS and published 3 papers relating to that work. My thesis is titled "Comparing and developing statistical methods for fine-mapping genes in complex diseases".

Working arrangements:

I usually work Monday - Thursday 8:30 - 4:30
