Research interests

My research interests are in the application of statistics to applied health with a particular interest in observational data. I have extensive experience of developing and evaluating psychometric properties of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS), analysing longitudinal data of PROMs, and Health-related quality of life data. Alongside my teaching and research work, I provided statistical support for staff and post graduate students in dentistry ( 2008- 2014), school of healthcare( 2015-2018). I  provided statistical support in study designs, data collection, data management, data analysis, interpretation of results, and demonstration of SPSS, STATA  and R software. More recently my research interest extended to use of electronic health data in research.
