Subject Areas: Statistics
I am a Lecturer in Health Statistics and a Statistician at Lancashire Clinical Trials Unit. I am also member of HeRMI group at the School of Health. My research interests are in the field of medical statistics and Bayesian modelling driven by applications, mainly in medicine, health, clinical trials, and ecology. I am also interested in statistics education and innovations in teaching and learning statistics. I have previously worked at the University of Sheffield and Lancaster University.
I have joined the University of Central Lancashire in February 2012 as a lecturer in Health Statistics. Prior to moving to UCLan, I held Daphne Jackson Fellowship hosted by the University of Sheffield. During the fellowship I worked on the project on Bayesian modelling in movement ecology. Also I held post-doctoral research positions at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in Lancaster University.
My research interests are currently in the field of medical and health statistics. The main area of my expertise is Bayesian statistics with practical applications in medical and health related studies, clinical trials, and ecology. I am also interested in innovations in teaching and learning statistics, particularly in using online resources and Internet technology for teaching statistics, and various issues related to statistical literacy.
