My research interests are in monitoring and screening of chronic diseases and over-diagnosis. My work focuses on statistical methods that help understand the implications of monitoring and screening. The clinical areas in which I am currently working on include diabetic retinopathy, chronic kidney disease and chronic heart failure. I am also the module coordinator for the Introduction to Statistics for Health Care Researchers course run by the Oxford Postgraduate Programme in Evidence-Based Health Care.
