I have worked at the University of Liverpool since 1998. I am interested in methodological research in the areas of clinical trials and evidence synthesis, particularly meta-analysis of individual participant data (IPD). I thoroughly enjoy working with clinical colleagues on collaborative projects including clinical trials in epilepsy, paediatrics and cancer, and evidence synthesis across a wide range of clinical areas. I am co-convenor for the Cochrane statistical methods group, co-lead for the HDS Evidence Synthesis and HTA research theme and co-director or the Liverpool EvideNce Synthesis (LENS) group. I am also research lead for HDS and represent the Department on the IPH Research and Impact Committee.
