Personal profile

Research interests

Broadly speaking, I carry out musculoskeletal epidemiology research using observational health data. I am currently a statistician for the RUbICOn study, which is an investigation into the use, safety and long-term effects of intra-articular corticosteroid injections for osteoarthritis. Before this I worked as the data manager and statistician on a programme investigating fractures in Sub-Saharan Africa (Fractures-E3).

Prior to joining the University of Bristol I'd led analyses in post-doctoral research projects at NDORMS (University of Oxford), making use of various national and regional databases/registries. I also undertook a DPhil using quasi-experimental approaches to estimate the impact of biologic therapy on the need for joint replacement among people with rheumatoid arthritis.
