Teaching interests

I am currently the Lead for Statistics and Numeracy for the BMBS Programme at Peninsula School of Medicine and I co-ordinate and teach the statistical elements of the Clinical Decision Making module.  I also sit on the BMBS Programme Committee.

I have developed and taught on several courses on practical and applied statistics for medical and dental students and other health professionals, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. 

Research interests

My research interests are in the design, analysis and interpretation of studies within healthcare settings.  I currently work with colleagues in the following healthcare areas:  

- Bowel cancer surgery
- Breast cancer surgery
- Cardiac surgery
- Emergency care
- Mental health
- Multiple sclerosis 
- Obesity
- Oral and dental health
- Pain and anaesthetics
- Stroke

As an experienced methodologist and triallist, I sit on a number of Trial Steering Committees and Data Monitoring Committees as an independent expert, as well as being a member of the Peninsula Schools of Medicine & Dentistry Research Degrees Committee.

Research degrees awarded to supervised students

I am currently supervising the statistical aspects of a number of healthcare-related PhD students.

PhD Co-supervision - Completed
Ailsa Nicol: Longitudinal studies into the effect of fluoridated milk on artificial caries lesion mineral change using an in-situ model dentine (graduated 2006, University of Glasgow)

Taher O Elgalaid: In vitro studies into the permeability of human dentine (graduated 2006, University of Glasgow)

Nutayla Alharthy: In vitro investigation of dental erosion in dental enamel (graduated 2005, University of Glasgow)

Vivian Binnie: A randomised controlled trial of “brief” smoking cessation advice and NRT, delivered by dental hygienists, to patients in a dental setting enamel (graduated 2005, University of Glasgow)

MSc Co-supervision
Over the course of 8 years at the University of Glasgow Dental School, I supervised the statistical aspects of approximately 80 postgraduate students’ projects, with, on average, approximately 10 students per year.
