OCTRU Medical Statistician
Passionate about improving the handling and reporting of missing data in randomised controlled trials
As a statistician within the Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU), I am involved in all aspects of clinical trials. I contribute statistical expertise to the development of grant applications and to the planning, conduct and analysis of primarily orthopaedic trials.
My research interests include the handling and reporting of missing data in randomised clinical trials, the use of patient reported outcomes and the methodology used in surgical trials. I hold a fellowship at the Health Economics Research Centre, Nuffield Department of Population Health, where I am focusing my methodology research on missing data in patient reported outcome measures collected during randomised controlled trials.
Additionally, I have been involved in Data Monitoring and Safety Committees as the independent statistician and regularly teach a variety of topics, including aspects of clinical trial design, statistical concepts and statistical programming in Stata.
I joined OCTRU in Spring 2017.
