I hold a PhD in Mathematical Statistical and have extensive expertise and experience in leading statistical design and analyses on a range of studies including large population surveys, electronic health record data, clinical trials and meta analyses. In particular, my interests lie in statistical methodologies for repeated measures data and treatment-outcome research
I lead the iPCHS programme of work relating to this, building on the work funded by my award of the NIHR SPCR Fellowship in 2010. This fellowship focused on modelling longitudinal observational data.
I am also a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, member of the Irish Statistical Association, member of the Society for Academic Primary Care, and a member of the NIHR Statistics Group. I am also a member of the Trial Steering Committees and Data Monitoring Committees for external clinical trials.
I regularly review for various funding bodies (MRC Methodology Research Programme, NIHR Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation Programme, ESRC, EPSRC) and for approximately 30 scientific journals.
