Biography

Biostatistics

I am an Assistant Professor and Applied Biostatistician in the Department of Oncology and the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, & Impact (formerly Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics) at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada.

I am a faculty biostatistician with the Ontario Clinical Oncology Group (OCOG), an academic cooperative clinical trials coordinating and methods group which focuses on clinical research in cancer and thrombosis. My work within OCOG focuses on collaborative research in the design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials.

In addition, I provide statistical and methodological support to researchers in various medical fields including emergency medicine, surgery, nephrology and pathology. My other research includes work in applied biostatistics, diagnostic studies, pilot and feasibility studies, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, and prognostic and predictive modeling.
