I recently joined the MRC Biostatistics Unit as a post-doctoral Statistician, after completing my PhD in Biostatistics at the University of Washington in August of 2015. My doctoral dissertation, supervised by Dr. Kenneth Rice, is titled “New methods for fixed effects meta-analysis, with frequentist and Bayesian estimation”.Under the supervision of Rebecca Turner and Nicky Best, my research at the BSU will relate to the synthesis and use of evidence to inform the design and conduct of clinical trials. Some of the challenges that our research will try to address, mostly through Bayesian methods, include: formal use of historical data, use of informative (data-based) prior distributions and the synthesis of information from different and diverse sources, while quantifying and handling potential conflicts among these sources.
