 Sir Henry Wellcome Building for Mood Disorders Research F07

 

Sir Henry Wellcome Building for Mood Disorders Research, University of Exeter, Queens Drive, Exeter, EX4 4QQ, UK

Overview

I am a Research Fellow in Statistics providing statistical consultancy/analytical/decission making support across various departments within the university (2013 to at present) but primarily within the College and Life and Environmental Sciences (CLES). Previously I worked as a statistician at the University of Plymouth, UK for a longitudinal childhood-diabetes study (2011 to 2013). I was also an analyst in an infectious disease (HIV/AIDS) research on Sub-Saharan African countries at the City University, London, UK and before that I worked as an analyst in the World Health Organisation (WHO) on vaccine preventable disease research in Bangladesh.

Here at the Exeter University, I provide statistical support for research design, grant applications, power/sample size calculation, data analytical support for linear/polynomial multilevel models, Generalised Estimating Equation (GEE) models, survival models, binary/count models, Instrumental variable/mediation/structural equation models, meta-analysis etc. Over the past years, I developed an interest on methodological researches relating to estimating "treatment effect" in the Randomised Control Trials (RCTs) when participants' adherence to the treatment is suboptimal and I have been publishing my own research works around this area. My analytical consultation support also includes these areas and please get in touch if you are an academic/researcher at the university who needs data analytical/statistical support for your research given that the prospective work will have a measurable output. Please visit my publication page to see various studies across the university I supported so far.

Statistical programming language: Stata (Preferred), R, SPSS (only to support students)
