I joined OCTRU and CSM in October 2018 as a Medical Statistician.
I completed an MSc in Medical Statistics at the University of Leicester in September 2018. My dissertation focused on the calculation of avoidable mortality in cancer patient survival, primarily exploring survival differences between male and female lung cancer patients and the underlying mechanisms that contribute to these differences. In particular, I explored how differences in the distribution of stage at diagnosis between sexes affects survival, and how a theoretical "better stage distribution" influences the total avoidable mortality.
I also graduated from the University of Southampton with a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics in July 2017.
