About

Biostatistics

I am an applied biostatistician and research methodologist with interests and expertise in clinical trial design, conduct, monitoring, statistical analysis and reporting.

I collaborate and consult on diverse health research projects where I work with researchers to design studies with the appropriate methodology and statistical analysis to answer the research question. Projects include randomized trials, diagnostic studies, pilot and feasibility studies, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, and clinical decision and prediction rules in clinical areas such as cancer, venous thromboembolism, surgery, critical care and emergency medicine.

I am Associate Professor in the Departments of Oncology, and Health Research Methods, Evidence, & Impact (Formerly Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics) at McMaster University

I am also a senior biostatistician with the Ontario Clinical Oncology Group (OCOG), an academic clinical trials organization that designs and conducts clinical trials in the areas of cancer and thrombosis. For a full list of OCOG studies, please visit OCOG-Trials.
