About me

I'm a Biostatistician (20% FTE) in the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm. Before moving to Stockholm in December 2020, I was an Associate Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Leicester. Since January 2018, I am an Associate Editor of the Stata Journal and was previously a Section Editor of the Journal of Statistical Software for over 5 years. My main research interests include survival analysis, multilevel and mixed effects models, and statistical software development. I lead a programme of research developing methodology for the analysis of complex survival data, motivated by applications to electronic health records. My PhD was on complex survival and joint longitudinal-survival models, which can be downloaded here.
