BSc, MSc, MSc, PhD


Senior Medical Statistician

I am a medical statistician at the Centre for Statistics in Medicine (CSM) providing senior oversight to, and statistical management of, clinical trials. I also advise on the design and analysis of observational studies and clinical trials in my role as an adviser for the Research Design Service South Central. I have extensive experience collaborating on health research projects in fields such as cardiovascular medicine (e.g. the Seven Countries Study), gastroenterology, nutrition (eg EXPOCHI, APOEUROPE,TRANSFAIR), oncology, paediatrics and public health (eg OTC-SOCIOMED), and I have co-authored over 80 peer-reviewed publications and a number of external scientific reports.  As ophthalmological data analysis is a long-standing interest of mine, I am a member of the NIHR Statistics group – ophthalmology research section and the Ophthalmic Statistics Group.

I provide independent review for journal submissions and grant applications at a national and international level. I serve as a statistical adviser on the editorial boards of Annals of Gastroenterology and BMC Ophthalmology

I am experienced in teaching medical statistics to biomedical researchers; as an assistant professor of Biostatistics in the Department of Social Medicine at the University of Crete for over eight years, I taught medical statistics courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. At CSM, I have presented at an Advanced Topics workshop and I facilitate on the annual CSM Randomised Controlled Trials course.

I graduated from Sheffield University with a BSc in Mathematics (1993) and completed an MSc in Applied Statistics at the University of Oxford (1994). After working as a medical statistician, I undertook an MSc in Quantitative Genetics and Genome Analysis at the University of Edinburgh (2000) and a PhD in Health Sciences (2002) at the University of Crete, Greece. In 2011, I spent two months at the University of Minnesota, USA, as a Fulbright Research Scholar.

My career in medical statistics started at the Biostatistics Unit of the University of Crete, where I collaborated on a WHO project aiming to set up a Cretan Cancer Registry. I was elected fellow of the Royal Statistical Society in 1995. I joined CSM as a senior medical statistician in 2015.
