My research focuses on the analysis of colorectal cancer data, typically from linked cancer registry and Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) databases.I am interested in statistical methodologies that apply to observational cohort studies and my research centres on estimating survival from colorectal cancer and multilevel logistic regression modelling. My work involves developing clinical indicators in order to assess healthcare and management within the NHS and the evaluation of the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme’s impact on colorectal cancer incidence. Examples of my previous projects include: estimating early mortality from colorectal cancer; changes in treatment and overall survival of anal cancer, and length of stay in NHS hospitals after colorectal cancer surgery.Obesity, Oral Cancer, Length of Stay, NHS, Colorectal Cancer Survival, CRC, rectal, HES, Ariadni Aravani, Aravani.My research focuses on the analysis of colorectal cancer data, typically from linked cancer registry and Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) databases.Previous and current roles.
In 2003 I graduated from the University of Economics and Business in Athens with a degree in Statistics. I subsequently undertook an MSc in Medical Statistics at Lancaster University and worked for the Northern and Yorkshire Cancer Registry and Information Service (NYCRIS) as a medical statistician on cancer epidemiology projects. Since 2014 I have been part of the Cancer Epidemiology Group researching colorectal cancer care and outcomes within the NHS.
My research focuses on exploiting routinely collected NHS data for research in order to identify variations in practice and management of colorectal cancer across NHS hospitals in England. Understanding this variation can improve services and spread best practice.
