I obtained my undergraduate degree in Physics from Durham University in 2000, and have worked in the field of clinical trials since 2008.
I worked from 2008-2018 at the Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit (LCTU), based at the University of Liverpool. In 2014 I obtained an M.Sc. in Quantitative Methods for Science, Social Science and Medicine from Lancaster University.
At the LCTU I worked variously as a data manager, trial coordinator, and statistician in medical statistics. I obtained wide experience in the design, setting-up, day-to-day running, and analysis of clinical trials and the ethical and regulatory conditions in which they are run. I also have experience of providing statistical support to other non-trial clinical research.
Disease areas of the studies on which I worked included haematological and pancreatic cancer, and chronic non-cancer conditions such as diabetes.
In April 2018 I joined the Tropical Clinical Trials Unit at LSTM as a medical statistician.
