I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Trials Research in Cardiff University. 

My background is in Medical Statistics. I have extensive expertise in the design, conduct, analysis, and reporting of randomised trials and other well-designed studies. My research to date is focussed on the areas of child and maternal health, and also surrounding the use of antibiotics in primary care. I completed my PhD in 2013 on "Examining the inter-relationships between antibiotic prescribing, complications and resistance in acute respiratory tract infections".  

I have methodological expertise in the use of routinely collected data/data linkage especially in the use of electronic routine data to support clinical trials. I am currently Lead Investigator for the evaluation of the Family Nurse Partnership Programme in Scotland.
