About

I’m a medical statistician involved in academic health and social care research and postgraduate teaching on statistics and research methods at the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, a joint venture between St George’s Medical School (part of the University of London) and Kingston University. I support faculty researchers on quantitative projects from design and bidding through to data analysis and writing for publication. I also teach statistics with Stata software on Harvard Medical School’s Global Clinical Scholars’ Research Training program. My own research interests are methodological: new computer-intensive methods for data affected by human error and coding habits, as well as effective communication and visualization of statistical findings. I sit on committees for statistical computing at the Royal Statistical Society, and clinical audit and confidential inquiries for the UK government (Department of Health). I am the Honorary Statistician at Princess Alice Hospice, a research-active hospice in Surrey, England. You can read more, including my publications, at my main web page. As if that wasn’t enough, I spend some of my spare time showing data people how to make stop-frame animations of their graphs, which I hope is a small contribution to promoting a more interactive, multimedia form of communicating research findings that will be the norm in the near future.
