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 session for the first and second years of the MBBS degree. The teaching is for Use of Evidence, which is part of the Vertical module
I have been involved with the co-ordination of the Epidemiology module for the MScs in "STI & HIV" and "Infection & Immunity". I also lead practical sessions and give lectures
I teach on the 4-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 a secondary supervisor on a number of PhD projects
