I have been a statistician at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences since 2007. In the last five years, my research has been mainly on the diagnosis of cancer in primary care, overdiagnosis and overtreatment. I am interested in methods for evaluating monitoring and screening programmes, test evaluation and diagnostic accuracy.
I am the study statistician for the SCAN pathway and IDEAL (Artificial Intelligence and Big Data for Early Lung Cancer Diagnosis). I am a statistical reviewer for Emergency Medicine, Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology and Colorectal Disease Journal. I have recently taken on a role as editorial board member for Nature Scientific Reports.
I am currently co-supervising two part-time DPhil students; Ms Ranin Soliman who is studying "Time Trends of Childhood Cancer Outcomes and Resource Use in Egypt" and Dr Hendrijks Dijkstra who is studying "Factors predicting cam morphology in athletes".
I am the co-coordinator of two online modules for the MSc in Evidence Based Health Care; Statistical Computing with R and Stata and the Introduction to Statistics for Health Care Researchers and deputy coordinator for the Year 1 & 2 medical statistics teaching of the Oxford pre-clinical (First BM). With Thomas Fanshawe, I run a one-day workshop on Statistical methods for diagnostic accuracy in medical research.
