Andrew is a Senior Biostatistician in the Freemasons Centre for Men’s Health (FFCMH), providing training, consultancy, supervision and services to staff, students and affiliate researchers at the University of Adelaide and affiliated institutions. He offers contemporary and advanced statistical methodologies in this consultancy role, and he is also a senior investigator on scientific and clinical programs across a broad spectrum of health and medical research. His particular focus, also embedded in his training and consultancy, is the translation of clinical questions into tractable problems with precise hypotheses and appropriate analytical techniques. He has a high level of proficiency in study design (sample size calculations, cohort selection criteria, randomisation techniques and blinding) and statistical methodologies including penalized regression, survival analyses, generalized linear models, mixed-effects analyses, non-linear (spline) techniques, diagnostic accuracy assessments; and methodological issues including the control of familywise error rates, and the appropriate variable selection/conditioning dependent on predictive vs. causal estimation.
Prior to joining the FFCMH, Andrew was Clinical Biostatistician at the Netherlands Cancer Institute where he worked for 8 years in the clinical trials unit.

Dr Vincent offers contemporary and advanced statistical methodologies in a across a broad spectrum of health and medical research. He is a co-author of over 100 published manuscripts in a variety of medical fields, from basic science through to RCTs and epidemiology. His particular focus is the translation of clinical questions into tractable problems. He has a high level of proficiency in study design (sample size & analysis considerations) and statistical methodologies including generalized linear models, mixed effects analyses, non-linear (spline) techniques, diagnostic accuracy assessments, penalized regressions techniques and time-to-event analyses; and methodological issues including data reduction, family-wise error rate and false discovery rate control, variable selection and/or conditioning, model validation (calibration and discrimination) and the distinction between associative, predictive and causal analyses.
