Ruth Knight

Medical Statistician

I currently work on a variety of clinical trials providing statistical expertise to the set-up, management, and analysis of these trials.

I recently completed my PhD at King's College London. My research concerned the use of Bayesian mixed models to combine both randomised controlled trial data and routine clinical practice data extracted from electronic medical records to provide less biased and more generalizable estimates treatment effectiveness than those based on either of the two data sources alone. The modelling approach was applied to estimate the effectiveness of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors which are drugs used in the management of dementia. Prior to this I graduated from Durham University with an MMath in Mathematics.

I joined OCTRU and CSM as a medical statistician in October 2017.
