I joined ScHARR in 2013 as an NIHR Research Methods Fellow. This fellowship focussed on the use of adaptive study designs in emergency medicine clinical trials. This research formed part of my dissertation for an MSc in Statistics with Medical Applications at the University of Sheffield. Prior to this I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a MMath (Hons) in 2013.
I am currently an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow investigating adaptive study designs and their impact on the health economic evaluation of health care technologies.
- I am the trainee representative on the NIHR Statistics Group Steering committee.
- I am a member of the Royal Statistical Society.
I am based in Design, Trials and Statistics.
