Following a BA in Geography and a PGCE, both at the University of Leicester, I taught Geography in secondary schools before moving to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where I studied for an MSc in Demography and Health. I completed my PhD at the University of Nottingham, before being appointed to Lecturer, and then Associate Professor, in Medical Statistics in the Division of Epidemiology and Public Health.
Epidemiology, medical statistics, large database research, policy evaluation, time series analysis.
I currently teach medical statistics and epidemiology at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, and supervise undergraduate BMedSci, taught postgraduate Master in Public Health, and PhD students.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

The majority of my work utilises my expertise in managing and analysing quantitative data, ranging from relatively small local survey datasets to extremely large datasets of routinely-collected primary and secondary care medical data. With colleagues I have developed the use of time series analysis methods for evaluating the effectiveness of public health policies using these data sources. Current projects include:
- evaluation the effectiveness of a microfinance intervention on child health in rural India
- evaluation the effectiveness of restricted visiting arrangements in neonatal units on the incidence of respiratory infection
- use of routinely-recorded primary and secondary care data to study medium- and longer-term health outcomes in children born prematurely
