My current research interests include monitoring chronic diseases, especially diabetes and hypertension, and clinical prediction rules, especially risk scores. My publications, listed on my webpage at the department of primary care health sciences, give the best overview of my research.
Several of my DPhil students in primary care have graduated over the last two years. I currently supervise DPhil students on the Evidence Based Health Care (EBHC) programme.

I am the course director of the MSc in Evidence Based Health Care Medical Statistics, a continuing professional development course for those in full-time clinical practice seeking expertise in medical statistics.
As a medical statistician, most of my research, whether I'm leading the project or supporting colleagues, is intended for clinical journals. Much of my research is with colleagues in the Oxford Centre for Monitoring and Diagnosis (MaDOx) on the monitoring of chronic diseases and on diagnosis and prognosis: the list of publications to the right is the best indicator of my research interests.
I am a statistical member (and, from 2016, Deputy Chair) of the Indpendent Scientific Advisory Committee (ISAC) that advises the MHRA on research with databases such as the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD), and an Associate Editor of the journal BMC Diagnostic and Prognostic Research.
