He graduated in Applied Statistics from Sheffield City Polytechnic in 1992, and obtained a Masters degree (MSc) in Medical Statistics from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine a year later. He then spent 5 years in the Information & Statistics Division of the NHS in Scotland developing an expertise in the design and analysis of case control and cohort studies. In 1998 he joined the Centre for Statistics in Medicine, University of Oxford, and as Senior Medical Statistician led a small dedicated team of statisticians supporting clinical research, predominantly randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and teaching medical statistics to non-statisticians.
From 2007 to 2020, Ed was Director of the Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Oxford's National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit, running a portfolio of around a dozen neonatal and maternal clinical trials. He was an Associate Professor at the University of Oxford and was conferred Chartered Scientist status (CSci) by the Science Council in 2010. Ed has also served on the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Commissioned and General Boards. He sits on the Northern Ireland Clinical Trials Unit Advisory Group and is an independent member of numerous Trial Steering and Data Monitoring Committees, chairing several.
Ed has considerable experience in the design, conduct, analysis and reporting of clinical trials, with a particular interest in multi-arm trial methodology and reporting, the use of routine data e.g., electronic patient records for conducting clinical trials, and the use of medical statistics in neonatology, paediatrics, mental health, and surgery.
