My main research interests are in the development and application of statistical methods to causal problems in epidemiology/health services research. Two particular areas are methods for analysis of longitudinal data, and methods for minimising bias due to missing data.


I teach 1st and 4th year medical students, and also contribute to the Short Course Programme.


My main areas of expertise are in methods for analysing exposures and outcomes across the life course, and in methods for dealing with missing data. I have a mathematical background, an MSc in Applied Statistics and a PhD in epidemiology, together with more than 15 years experience working in academic public health and epidemiology. I enjoy interpreting and explaining results from more complex statistical methods to other researchers and members of the public and using all forms of the media to effectively promote public health messages.
