I joined the department in June 2018 as a clinical trials statistician in the Primary Care Clinical Trials Unit. Part of my role here is to assist in the design and set up of research projects which are primarily randomised controlled studies. I also provide statistical support to researchers in the form of writing statistical analysis plans, generating and validating randomisation schedules, undertaking both interim (e.g. Data Monitoring Committee reports), final analysis and dissemination of research findings.
I am completing my PhD at University College London which is looking into the complication of managing HIV in relation to Hepatitis C in persons seen for routine clinical cate in Italy. My research involves various data analysis of an Observational Cohort study of more than 15,000 HIV infected individuals.
My previous work experience has involved working in a wide range of clinical areas including cancer, cardiovascular medicine, mental health and vaccine studies.
