I studied psychology in Bremen (Germany) and social research methods and statistics in London. After spells as a researcher and statistics lecturer at City, University of London and the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, I joined UCL's Department of Applied Health Research in April 2017.

Research Themes
Research Summary

I am an applied statistician involved in studies in psychology, health care, and epidemiology, with a particular interest in mental health. My work has included life course research, survey methodology, monitoring and evaluation of health services, and psychotherapy research. I use a variety of designs and types of data, including randomised controlled trials, cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys, and clinical records (such as hospital episode statistics). Currently I am involved in two large projects at the Royal College of Anaesthetists, namely the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit and the Perioperative Quality Improvement Programme. I am also a member of ChAPTRe, the Child Attachment and Psychological Therapies Research Unit based at UCL and the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.

My Erdős number is 5.

Teaching Summary

I enjoy teaching statistical data analysis and research methods, and regularly give lectures on statistical modelling for MSc students and within the UCL Doctoral School.

In 2018/19, I will co-lead the modules "Regression Modelling" (with Paola Zaninotto) and "Advanced Statistics" (with Hynek Pikhart) for students on the MSc courses Health & Society, Population Health, and Dental Public Health. I also co-lead (with Paola Zaninotto) the short course on "Research Methods for Quantitative Data" at the UCL Doctoral School.
