Personal profile


An experienced applied biostatistician working in the fields of population health, medicine and health sciences, with continued interaction and collaboration on a daily basis with researchers from WA's larger teaching hospitals along with involvement in numerous population based studies. I currently provide statistical services, advice and training in all areas of biostatistics and I am currently on the Supervisory team of 8 graduate research students. With 19 years statistical experience, during which time I have continually been an active statistical consultant to medical researchers, I has acquired extensive knowledge and expertise in clinical trials and epidemiological studies. The former of these expanding on my knowledge from previous work at AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals UK, leading to my current involvement in numerous clinical trials in varying roles from primary statistician to member of the data safety monitoring board. My general statistical interests concern applications of statistics in medicine and health sciences and I have recently provided several statistical research articles and developed software packages in this area. Previous roles include Senior Lecturer in Statistics and Director of the UWA Centre for Applied Statistics, a group for which I continue to serve as a Senior Strategic Advisor.
