About me


I'm internationally trained in biostatistics, pharmacology, toxicology, drug development and regulatory affairs, clinical trial design and medicine. I've worked in academic research units (England, Canada and Norway) and the pharmaceutical industry (Australia, Denmark and Germany). I was an independent consultant to the pharma industry in Europe and have experience across various diseases (primarily diabetes, oncology, heart failure, pediatrics) and all phases of research. My primary research interests include the interpretation of clinical trials, Bayesian methods, and survival analysis, in particular random effects frailty modelling. 

Early in my career I was the sole statistician/programmer at a small company. I can see the value in supporting an online community, sharing code and SAS tips, and connecting solitary programmers who may be isolated within a company or reside in remote areas.
