Projects per year
I am a statistician, with a 5-year chancellor’s fellowship award, collaborating with researchers, clinicians, epidemiologists and consultants in the NHS and international partners on data driven solutions to problems in public health and epidemiology. My work has helped to shape public health policy, in particular my work evaluating the impact of the HPV vaccination has provided the evidence base for vaccine and cervical screening policy in Scotland and contributed to the international evidence base.
In light of this research, I was awarded the 2018 Royal Society of Edinburgh Sir Thomas Makdougall Brisbane Medal for recognition of my “outstanding, internationally renowned research in public health epidemiology and health informatics”.
My publications span the fields of statistics, informatics, medicine and epidemiology with publications in top-ranking journals such as Lancet Infectious Diseases and the BMJ. My statistical expertise lies in the analysis and modelling of large observational health datasets with research interest in the fields of public health epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology and digital health.
With my research expertise, highly cited articles and high impact publications, and growing research group, I am collaborating with colleagues to create an internationally renowned centre in statistical epidemiology and health informatics, spanning the departments of Mathematics and Statistics, Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Science and Computer and Information Science.
I am an active contributor to my statistical community, elected to the Council of the Royal Statistical Society in 2014, where I currently hold the post of honorary officer for conferencing and events with responsibility for organisation and strategy of their international conference.
