Rebecca Whittle

Senior Researcher in Medical Statistics

My main research interests lie in prognosis and prediction, with a focus on improving the reporting and development of prediction research. I joined the Centre for Statistics in Medicine in January 2023 working on statistical methodology research funded by Cancer Research UK (CRUK), and various applied medical research projects for the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Blood and Transplant Research Unit (BTRU) in Data Driven Transfusion Practice.

Prior to this, much of my work experience has been as a medical statistician at Keele University, concurrently working on prognosis related studies (both applied and methodology) whilst providing statistical support for various other clinical projects in the School of Medicine, with a particular focus on the use of large data from electronic health records (EHR).

I completed a PhD in Medical Statistics at Keele University in 2022, which involved a mixture of applied and methodology work covering the areas of prognosis, prediction, individual participant data (IPD) meta-analysis and measurement error. Before this I completed a BSc in Mathematics at the University of Leeds (2012) and an MSc in Medical Statistics at the University of Leicester (2013).
