Ruth Knight

MMath, PhD


Senior Medical Statistician

I contribute statistical expertise to the design, conduct, analysis and reporting of trials across a range of clinical areas including trauma, rehabilitation, and surgical trials. I also perform secondary analyses of trial data and contribute to methodological research projects. 

My research interests include randomisation approaches, in particular investigating how best to select the optimal strategy.

Prior to joining OCTRU I obtained an MMath in Mathematics from Durham University and completed my PhD at King's College London. My PhD research concerned the use of Bayesian mixed models to combine both randomised controlled trial data and routine clinical practice data extracted from electronic medical records to provide less biased and more generalisable estimates of treatment effectiveness.

I joined OCTRU and CSM as a medical statistician in October 2017.
