My research is generally focussed on statistical methodology, with applications of statistics to health care. My main area of research to date has been on the development and application of novel statistical methods for the analysis of large-scale clinical trials. My principal theoretical interests are survival analysis and the analysis of recurrent events with a particular interest in joint modelling strategies that combine the two. My current major medical collaborations are in cardiovascular disease and previously in epilepsy.  My PhD Thesis was titled "Statistical models for censored point processes with cure fractions" and you can read a copy here (should you so wish).
