I am a Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Statistics, having joined the University of Huddersfield in January 2010.
Before joining the University I was previously employed as an engineer for about 10 years in the nuclear industry; initially for the UK Atomic Energy Authority, and subsequently for British Energy. My work involved modelling of bore cracking in nuclear reactor fuel bricks and channel bore characterisation. I also worked for about 5 years as a mathematics lecturer in Further Education, teaching mathematics and statistics modules up to Further A level.
I have a degree in mathematics from the University of Sheffield, MSc(Eng) and MPhil degrees in materials science from the University of Liverpool, and a PhD in medical statistics from Cardiff University. I am a Chartered Mathematician (CMath MIMA) and am a member of the Royal Statistical Society with Graduate Statistician status (FRSS GradStat).
Outside of work I enjoy songwriting and playing guitar. I also help to run a junior chess club.
I am currently a member of the Institute for Research in Citizenship and Applied Human Sciences and the Centre for Health and Social Care Research I am also a member of the Skin Interface Sciences and Applied Statistics Special Interest Groups.
My research encompasses a wide variety of projects in clinical, medical and other fields. Some of my published work includes:
Modelling techniques employed in these projects include: multilevel (hierarchical) modelling; parametric survival analysis/competing risk modelling; multiple regression; generalised linear modelling and the analysis of binary data; multivariate analysis.

I have provided statistical peer reviews for the following journals: American Journal of Infection Control, British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, Caries Research, Clinical Biomechanics, International Journal of Pediatric Dentistry, Journal of Applied Oral Science, Nephron Journals, Nursing Reports and Nursing Research and Practice.
As of Summer 2013 I am a supervisory team member for 6 PhD and 2 Professional Doctorate students. I have supervised one MSc student dissertation to completion. In 2012-13 I obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Research Supervision from the University of Huddersfield.
I am able to offer support in PhD projects based on quantitative research methods with a significant statistical component, particularly those involving similar techniques utilised in my own PhD, namely: parametric survival analysis, multivariate methods, multilevel analysis and the analysis of binary data. I can also offer support in more general statistical methods.
I contribute to several undergraduate, Masters and Professional Doctorate modules in the Schools of Human and Health Sciences and Applied Sciences, and have held a Module Leadership role. I also provide cross-school training in SPSS software to staff and PGR students.
