Research Statistician, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
I joined the University of Nottingham in mid September 2012 as a Research Statistician, and so far have worked on two drug safety studies using data from the QResearch database. The first study investigated the association between antidepressant use and certain adverse outcomes including stroke, attempted suicide and epilepsy. The second and current study is investigating the association between diabetic medications and cancer.
Prior to this I worked for approximately sixteen years for the University of Leicester as a Research Technician in the Department of Psychiatry. Whilst at Leicester I studied part-time for a Master's degree in Medical Statistics, which I completed in 2006 and was awarded a Merit. I also have a first degree in Computer Systems Engineering from the University of Warwick.

I am currently involved with the Injury Epidemiology and Prevention Research Group, investigating whether a scheme to provide families with young children under the age of 5 in the most deprived areas of England, with safety education and equipment, was successful in reducing the number of admissions to hospital of those children due to unintentional injuries in the home.
My previous research activity was within the Primary Care Epidemiology Research Group, specifically drug safety, where I investigated the association between certain drug types, such as antidepressants and anticholinergic drugs, and the risk of adverse outcomes such as epilepsy/seizures and dementia.
