As Professor of Medical Statistics at King's College London my statistical research interests focus around methods that make better use of available research data information. Three PhD studentships in this area with supervisory collaboration with the Cambridge MRC Biostatistics Unit are: meta-analysis with partially reported study information; handling missing data in trials where the primary outcome is a composite; and unbiased approaches to re-using initial stage data in two-stage adaptive studies validating the predictive utility of biomarkers and questionnaires in primary care. Public Health research focuses on collaboration in trials of lifestyle behaviours (physical activity, smoking cessation), their determinants and consequences. Recent experience has included clinical trials and early phase trials, committee work for trials, for NICE Public Health, and NIHR Public Health Research Funding.
