I completed a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics with Statistics in 2000 at the University in Bristol. Next, I studied for a Masters in Medical Statistics in 2000-2001 at the University of Leicester.
I started working for UCL as a HIV Research Statistician in 2001. Whilst working, I completed a part-time PhD in 2002-2007 in Epidemiology. The title of my project was "Methodological issues in assessing the incidence and prevalance of antiretroviral therapy-related toxicities".
From 2008-2011 I held an MRC Career Development Award Fellowship. In 2011 I became a Lecturer in Biostatistics in the UCL Research Department of Infection and Population Health.
I work as a medical statistician/epidemiologist, primarily in the HIV research field. My work mostly focuses on observational cohort studies of HIV positive individuals, such as the Royal Free HIV Database and the D:A:D Study. I am interested in the long-term clinical, virological and immunological outcomes of antiretroviral therapy to treat HIV infection. A further research area is the potential long-term side effects of antiretroviral therapy. This frequently involves applying novel statistical methods in order to be able to answer clinically relevant questions
I am also involved in studies of viruses that may occur in adults and children who are immunosuppressed after solid organ transplantation, such as cytomegalovirus and Epstein Barr virus
I collaborate closely with my colleagues in the HIV Biostatistics and Epidemiology group, clinicians, virologists and scientists within UCL, at the Royal Free Hospital, and worldwide.
I give lectures and lead small group work sessions for the Use of Evidence module in the first two years of the MBBS degree.
I am the module co-lead for the "Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases" Masters-level module. I also provide lectures and lead practical sessions for this course.
I teach on the 5-day short course "Methodological and Statistical Issues in HIV Research" co-ordinated by my UCL Research Department
I give lectures as part of the F2 Academic track training on statistical methods
I give lectures and am a group work leader for the UCL MSc module in Advanced Statistical Methods
I am currently a primary/secondary supervisor on 6 PhD projects
