Personal profile

Research Interests

My research expertise lies in estimating and presenting population-based cancer patient survival, and exploring the reasons for regional variation in survival. In addition, I am interested is assessing the lower thresholds, numbers-wise, for estimating robust survival estimates that can be compared then to other regions or countries. These interests arise from having worked previously as a statistician in the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry producing official statistics, information queries, audit reports, and research articles. I am developing funnel-plot methodology to present international survival in which overall mean and control limits are underpinned by a random-effects model.  I am looking at causal inference statistical methodology to understand the drivers of cancer patient survival variation using observational datasets. For instance, is treatment in elderly cancer patients effective at extending life, and how much of the lower survival in elderly cancer patients is due to under-treatment?
