I joined the CTRU as a medical statistician in October 2018. Prior to this I was an NIHR Research Methods Fellow in ScHARR, looking at futility analysis in the context of publically funded trials with an internal pilot. This work formed part of my dissertation for an MSc in Statistics with Medical Applications. Before moving to Sheffield I graduated from The University of Bath with a MMath (Hons) in 2014.
