Background and focus


I am internationally trained in biostatistics, pharmacology, toxicology, drug development and regulatory affairs, clinical trial design and medicine. 

I have worked in academic research units (England, Canada and Norway) and the pharmaceutical industry (Australia, Denmark and Germany) and was an independent consultant to the pharma industry in Europe. I have experience across various diseases (primarily diabetes, oncology, heart failure, pediatrics) and all phases of research. 

My primary research interests include the interpretation of clinical trials, Bayesian methods, and survival analysis, in particular random effects frailty modelling. 

My industry background implies a hankering for SAS and thus the blog is focused primarily on SAS code. However, I intend to consider other programming languages such as R, MATLAB, WinBUGS etc.

I support the All Trials campaign and the Heterodox Academy.
