Research

Statistical modelling

My main research interest is statistical modelling, particularly the development and validation of prognostic models. In addition I have considerable experience undertaking and peer-reviewing systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Previous research has focused on handling continuous variables using fractional polynomial transformations, and mixture modelling.

Epilepsy

I have worked with data from people with epilepsy since 2008. In particular I am familiar with the Standard Versus New Antiepileptic Drug (SANAD) Study, the Multicentre Study of Early Epilepsy and Single Seizures (MESS), the Medical Research Council Antiepileptic Drug Withdrawal (MRC AED) Study, and the National General Practice Survey of Epilepsy (NGPSE).

Tuberculosis

I spent 2.5 years summarising all published literature (phase II and phase III studies) considering chemotherapy for people newly diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis.
