I provide statistical support for PenCLAHRC research. My main area of expertise is the design and analysis of cluster randomised trials. I am trial statistician on the UK NIHR funded cluster randomised trial of the effectiveness of the Incredible Years teacher classroom management course, the feasibility work for which was funded by PenCLAHRC (protocol published – BMC Public Health 2012; 12: 719), and a stepped wedge cluster randomised trial of a community-based physical activity intervention in the South West, part funded by PenCLAHRC (protocol published – BMC Public Health 2012; 12: 581). I am also part of the team that has run a non-randomised cluster trial to assess the feasibility of a definitive trial of a school-based intervention to enhance mental health and well-being of pupils (part supported by PenCLAHRC and paper in press with British Journal of Psychiatry). My other key area of research is studies of diagnostic test accuracy. I teach on the Evidence-Based Practice workshops run by PenCLAHRC for health professionals, facilitating small group critical appraisal sessions and running statistics clinics to explain challenging concepts to the participants.
