Biography

I joined Design, Trials and Statistics section of 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.

In 2016 I was awarded an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship exploring the use of health economics in the design, monitoring and analysis of adaptive clinical trials. More information about this fellowship can be found here

In January 2019 I moved to HEDS as a Research Associate in Health Economics and Statistics. I am also a Statistics Adviser for the Research Design Service, Yorkshire and Humber.
