I am interested in the development of novel statistical methodology, and in its applications to medical science. I collaborate with Cardiff University colleagues on societal and environmental determinants of mental and physical health, on child protection, and on clinical trials (in dialysis and delirium, for example).

I maintain a particular focus on the analysis of longitudinal data, where study subjects may be observed on multiple occasions. Such analyses are especially interesting when the observed timings of measurements can provide further information about study subjects. For instance, if (when compared to healthier participants) those subjects who are most unwell tend to be observed less frequently, or to drop out earlier, careful analysis may be needed to avoid overrepresenting the healthy subjects when drawing conclusions from the study.
