I am a Newcastle University Research Fellow in Biostatistics, interested in methodology for improving the design and analysis of clinical trials. As well as working on developing methodology, I am also interested in collaborating on real trials.

I have been at Newcastle University since November 2018. Prior to this I was a Statistician at the MRC Biostatistics Unit, University of Cambridge.
