Projects per year
With a background in mathematics and statistics, I commenced my career in the Department of Statistics, University of Leeds. I have also worked at the Institute of Psychiatry, London, and the United Medical and Dental Schools (now incorporated into King's College London).
My research has included: capture-recapture methods in the estimation of population size; multinomial logistic regression in modelling asthma symptoms; proportional hazards regression applied to survival following a stroke; kappa statistics in assessing observer agreement. At King's College London I was principal investigator for a comparative study of stroke in Barbados and South London. My current interests include the role of ethnicity in medical/ social research and the influence of atmospheric pollution and climate on stroke.
Joining CRIPACC as Social Statistician in 2013, I am currently engaged with the Central Public Health Interventions Responsive Studies Team (PHIRST), focussing on a project on the evaluation of the move to remote models of service delivery by drug and alcohol services in Leeds during the COVID-19 pandemic. Collaboration with research teams across UH includes all of the groups within CRIPACC.
