I am a docent and associate professor in biostatistics. I have worked as a biostatistician in Sweden, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, including positions in academia and in government.
I am currently a member of the Management Group for the Swedish eScience Research Centre and a co-leader for the eScience for Cancer Prevention and Control project.
My main interests are in statistical modelling and simulation for cancer. This includes:
- Methods for survival analysis, including generalised survival models, smooth accelerated failure time models and parametric multi-state Markov models (http://CRAN.R-project.org/package=rstpm2); see also our article in Statistical Methods in Medical Research and Statistics in Medicine.
- Microsimulation for cost-effectiveness analysis of prostate cancer testing (https://github.com/mclements/microsimulation, https://github.com/mclements/prostata).
- Methods for paired screen-positive designs (https://github.com/mclements/psp).
- Methods for multi-rater agreement (http://CRAN.R-project.org/package=magree).
