Although I’m not completely new at Red Door Analytics, it’s probably about time that I said a quick hello to introduce myself. So hello!
I joined Red Door back in August 2022 as the Director of Applied Biostatistics, and have been working here on a 30% basis since then, with the remainder of my employment being at Karolinska Institutet.
Originally from the UK, where I studied Mathematics BSc at the University of Birmingham and Medical Statistics MSc at the University of Leicester, I moved to Stockholm in September 2013 to start my PhD studies at Karolinska Institutet. Four very enjoyable years passed until I defended my thesis titled Flexible parametric models for cancer patient survival : loss in expectation of life and further developments in March 2018. I was very lucky to have an extremely experienced (and lovely!) supervision team whose expertise was in survival analysis, and specifically flexible parametric survival models. And so I became skilled in the same field.
I then went on to work as an applied biostatistician, and subsequently moved to my current position at Karolinska Institutet where I work 70% of my time as a research coordinator and biostatistician as part of the inflammatory joint diseases group at the Department of Medicine, Solna.
During my time in research, I’ve had the pleasure of working with many different disease areas, with the major of my work concentrated within cancer epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology in the rheumatoid arthritis field. You can find out some more information on what I’ve been up to on my Google Scholar.
Although I dabble in SAS, Stata will always be my number one statistical software! I have written, along with Michael, the Stata commands strcs, which estimate flexible parametric survival models on the log hazard scale, and stmt, which simultaneously models multiple timescales (there’ll be more from us on
stmt very soon!).
At RDA, I work hands-on with client-based projects, with the development of teaching material, and help coordinate our applied biostatistics group. I am really happy to be part of Red Door Analytics, to contribute and learn from our growing team here!
