I am a Professor of Biostatistics working in the Biostatistics Research Group in the Department of Health Sciences at the University of Leicester, UK. I also work part-time in the Biostatistics Group in the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
I have a variety of interests, mainly in the area of survival analysis in epidemiology. Much of my work focuses on the analysis from data from national cancer registries. I particularly enjoy writing software to enable transferral of new methods into practice.
I enjoy teaching and have developed some interactive graphs to help with communication. Related to this we have developed interative graphs to display various cancer survival measures, called InterPret.

4-9 June 2018. Paul Dickman and I will teach a 5-day course on statistical methods for population-based cancer survival analysis in Veneto Italy. Further details available here.
I have developed a number of Stata commands. I have added some examples of using this code and intend to add to these over time.
I have also worked with Michael Crowther on various bits of software. Michael is a much better programmer than me!
