Biography

Personal Statement

I am an NIHR Post-Doctoral Fellow estimating time to next event for patients with recurrent conditions such as epilepsy and asthma.

From 2013 to 2015 I was a post-doctoral research associate within the Institute of Translational Medicine and the Institute of Global Health. I worked as part of the PreDiCT-TB project considering model-based preclinical development of anti-tuberculosis drug combinations. From 2008 to 2013, I was the study statistician on a NIHR programme grant predicting outcomes for epilepsy treatments. During this time I also completed a part-time PhD entitled "Prognostic Factors for Epilepsy".
