RESEARCH INTERESTS:

I am a statistician in The Infant Mortality and Morbidity Studies group, currently working on the DEPICT Study. My main interests are in:

  • Predicting length of stay in neonatal care
  • Investigating the impact of neonatal and paediatric care
  • Understanding differences in outcomes after paediatric care

 

I recently completed my PhD entitled: Modelling neonatal care pathways for babies born very preterm. My thesis is available online.

RESEARCH GRANTS:

Optimising Neonatal Service Provision for Preterm Babies (OPTI-PREM)

Modelling neonatal care pathways: costs and consequences for the future (NIHR Doctoral Fellowship September 2013 - August 2018) - £267,000
