I joined ScHARR as a PhD student in October 2015. My PhD is funded by the Harry Worthington Scholarship. Prior to starting in ScHARR, I worked as a Research Assistant as part the Health e-Research Centre at the University of Manchester. I have also previously worked as an Operational Research within HMRC and as an analyst for an international engineering firm. I have an MSc in Statistics from Lancaster University and a BSc in Geography and Mathematics from the University of Sheffield.

Professional Activities

I am an Honorary Research Associate at the University of Manchester and a member of the Royal Statistical Society.

Research Interests

My research interests are in applied statistical methods in medical research, in particular analysis and design of complex intervention trials, pragmatic clinical trial design, and methods to tackle health inequalities.

My PhD research is on challenges in the design and analysis of trials evaluating complex interventions in public health research, focussing on the design of proportionate universal intervention trials.
