Broadly speaking, I apply and develop epidemiological methods for observational health data research. Currently I'm working towards my DPhil which is focussed on the impact of biologic therapies on need for joint replacement among people with rheumatoid arthritis.

Prior to this I'd completed studies in physiology and epidemiology at Liverpool and Imperial College London, and worked for two years as a statistician in the Health Services Delivery group here at NDORMS (Oxford). I've also assisted on various projects within the Pharmaco- and Device Epidemiology group that were in the main related to treatments for osteoporosis and made use of various national and regional databases/registries. I've hence developed an interest in novel methods to deal with confounding and bias.
