- Professional Activities
My applied research interests lie within the broad field of Biostatistics in Public Health with emphasis on the design, running and analysis of data from clinical trials and public health interventions. I maintain a special interest in perinatal trials.
My theoretical research interests are predominantly in the field of survival analysis and its applications. Examples of such applications are readily found in both experimental (e.g. randomised controlled trials) and observational (e.g. epidemiological cohort) settings. In particular, much of my research to date deals with the extension of theory associated with recurrent or multiple event survival data and the design of follow-up intervals. More recently I have been looking at methods to model the cumulative effect of time dependent exposures on outcomes.
