I am a clinical trial statistician at Imperial. I have an interest in digital health interventions and their evaluation. I am currently collaborating with my mhealth on trials in chronic diseases and the use of a smartphone app to improve self-management. Around my role as a statistician I'm a mental health first aider for Imperial, and I am involved in the community at Imperial Clinical Trials Unit (ICTU), having given talks such as the “Stress Buster” session during Mental Health Awareness week.

As an RDS General Advisor, I work closely and collaboratively with other experienced research advisors both internally at Imperial and across the four partner institutions ( ). I support and advise investigators who are submitting applications for peer-reviewed funding streams for a broad range of health service research. Including providing written and oral advice on aspects such as the research design, funding stream and statistical aspects of the application.

Before joining ICTU, I received my BSc in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Brighton. I have worked as a database administrator prior to completing an MSc in Medical Statistics from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In my previous clinical trial experience, I worked at IQVIA in their biostatistics department for 18 months, where he has worked on phase I, II and IV trials. With experience writing study SAP and shells in a variety of studies. In addition to this, I have learnt how to write dataset specifications for both SDTM and ADaM CDISC implementation. Therapeutic areas in which he has experience includes respiratory, rheumatology, oncology.

Around working as a biostatistician at IQVIA, I was also involved in the fundraising committee, an editor for the monthly office-wide newsletter, and was a mental health first aider for the office.
