Research Summary
My primary research activity has been in the areas of HIV, HCV and HBV clinical epidemiology, and hospital acquired infections, both as a collaborating statistical epidemiologist, and as a lead researcher. I am the principal statistician for the Icona Foundation Study, and have been critically involved with the design, analysis and publication of results, and the initiation and management of an additional 10 years of follow-up, starting from September 2007. I am responsible for several statistical analyses of the EuroSIDA cohort study, and my main research focus is concerned with the use and effects of antiretroviral treatment against resistant strains of HIV. A specific project using the data of the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research led to international recognition and a publication. I recently started to be involved in the statistical analysis of the data from the UK Collaborative Group on HIV Resistance providing my expertise and leading a first project. I have key involvement in all these studies as a member of the steering and supervisory committee of the Icona, EuroSIDA and UK Collaborative Group on HIV Resistance. My work in HIV clinical epidemiology has led to numerous publications and conference presentations since 1994.
Teaching Summary
I have made a considerable contribution to medical undergraduate teaching of biostatistics and epidemiology in my current and previous posts, and currently undertake approximately 15 hours of undergraduate teaching (lectures and tutorials) per year, in addition to involvement in course preparation and examinations. Currently, I teach on both of the medical undergraduate courses in years 1 and 2 at UCL that are concerned with research methods (?Evaluation of Evidence? and ?Epidemiology?) as a tutor and a lecturer on both. Both courses are integrated within the medical curriculum, and aim to give students the skills to interpret, appraise and apply medical research findings. I have also developed and taught a number of postgraduate seminars and short courses in research methods and statistics in the UK and abroad.
