I am Programme Director for the MSc in Medical Statistics, a post I share with another member of the Biostatistics research group. I have been Director of Education for the PGT courses in the Department of Population Health Sciences and School of Medicine since 2020 and a member of the Department of Population Health Sciences Management and Strategic Advisory group.
Most of my teaching is on the MSc in Medical Statistics but I also teach on other masters courses and provide statistics training for PGR students.
My research interests are in the area of evidence synthesis and cost-effectiveness analysis, particularly in the area of complex public health intervention evaluation.
I have two PhD students:
- Ellesha Smith who is funded by an NIHR Doctoral Fellowship
- Rebecca Linnett, who is funded by ERSC
I supervise NIHR Pre-doctoral Fellows
- Molly Wells 2019-2021
- Louise Haddon 2021-2024
- Rahma Said 2022-2024

For our MSc Medical Statistics students I run workshops on: careers for medical statisticians, consultancy skills, report writing, presentation skills and project skills.
I also teach introductory statistical methods to other masters, PGR and undergraduate students.
