Biography

Personal Statement

I have a background of Mathematics and Statistics; with a BSc from the University of Liverpool in Mathematical Sciences with a European Language, an MSc in Medical Statistics from the University of Leicester and a PhD in Biostatistics from the University of Liverpool. My doctoral thesis examines the impact of data sharing and data transparency on the conduct of individual participant data syntheses.

Within my role at the Department of Biostatistics, I conduct and support clinical authors on systematic reviews, meta-analysis and evidence synthesis as the Statistical Editor of the Cochrane Epilepsy Group. I also have experience of Health Technology Assessment, Single Technology Appraisals, analysis of clinical trials and statistical consultancy. I have contributed to and delivered teaching programmes within the Department of Biostatistics and the Cochrane Collaboration.
