Research Interests

  • Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs)
    Member of ACTA Statistics in Trials Interest Group (STInG). Judge of ACTA's Excellence in Trial Statistics Award. NHMRC & MRFF Grant Review Panel member. Substantial involvement in many RCTs (funding applications, design and analysis, presentation and interpretation).
  • Biostatistics
    Statistican collaborator in health research. Some statistical consulting. Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society. PLoS One Statistical Advisory Board. Statistical reviewer for The Lancet (2003-9).
  • Stata statistical software
    I have contributed user-written programs (https://logec.repec.org/RAS/pch514.htm), including (1) table1_mc ... create "table 1" of baseline characteristics for a manuscript, (2) precombine... examine n ≥ 2 datasets before combining, (3) labeldatasyntax... produce syntax to label variables and values, given a data dictionary. Some of these commands are useful for the systems for the transparent and reproducible organisation of statistical analyses of a study’s data, while others concern determining the sample size of a RCT at the trial design stage. I also teach Stata courses.
