Bsc (Hons), MSc, PhD I joined the University of Leicester in 2008 after I was awarded my PhD from the University of Nottingham. My PhD assessed methods for designing and analysing clinical trials with ordinal outcomes. Although I am based in the Biostatistics Research Group I collaborate extensively with the Diabetes Research Centre and much of my work is within this clinical area. I am also a Senior Associate Statistician at the Leicester Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) and I played a key role in this unit’s successful accreditation in 2013.`
