Prof Ian White
Tel: 64715
  • Professor in Medical Statistics
  • Inst of Clinical Trials &Methodology
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

I moved at the start of 2017 to a new position as Professor of Statistical Methods for Medicine at the Medical Research Council Clinical Trials Unit at University College London, UK. This follows 16 years as a programme leader at the Medical Research Council Biostatistics Unit in Cambridge. I originally studied mathematics at Cambridge University, and my first career was as a teacher of mathematics in The Gambia, Cambridge and London. I obtained my MSc in statistics from University College London, where I subsequently worked in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health. I was then Senior Lecturer in the Medical Statistics Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I received my PhD by publications in 2011.

Research Summary

I am a medical statistician with an interest in developing new methodology for clinical trials, meta-analysis and observational studies. I am particularly interested in developing methods for handling missing data, where I have contributed to the widespread use of multiple imputation and am now developing extensions for missing-not-at-random data. I am also particularly interested in meta-analysis and network meta-analysis, where I have developed methods for assessing and testing inconsistency. Other interests are in correcting for departures from randomised treatment and in prognostic modelling. I run courses on many of these topics and have written a range of Stata software.

Teaching Summary
I teach various short courses including "Practical use of multiple imputation to handle missing data in Stata" (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ictm/education/short-courses/missing-data) and "Using simulation studies to evaluate statistical methods"
