Research Summary

My primary research activity has been in the areas of HIV, HCV and HBV clinical epidemiology, and more recently influenza, 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 new generation sequencing and the data of COHERE led to international recognition and a publication. I have been involved in the statistical analysis of the data from the UK Collaborative Group on HIV Resistance providing my expertise and leading a number of projects. I have key involvement in all these studies and I am a member of the steering and supervisory committee of the Icona and EuroSIDA. My work in HIV clinical epidemiology has led to numerous publications and conference presentations since 1994. I have received extensive training in the design and analysis of randomized clinical trials (University of Minnesota, 2009-2011) and I have developed a strong interest in causal inference after training received at the LSHTM and University North Carolina Chapel Hill (September 2019). 

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.
