South Cloisters Room 1.11

John joined the Medical Statistics group as a PhD candidate in October 2014, under the supervision of Professor William Henley, Dr Beverley Shields and Professor Andrew Hattersley.

The focus of his research is to develop a statistical framework for stratified medicine with a particular application in type 2 diabetes. The project involves the use of advanced statistical methodology to model differential response to therapy and side effect risk among people with diabetes.

The project is part of the MRC-funded APBI Stratification and Extreme Response Mechanism IN Diabetes (MASTERMIND) consortium, which aims to provide a platform for a stratified medicines approach to the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

John brings several years of experience as an epidemiological analyst and researcher within the NHS, charity sector, and financial services industry. Across these roles he developed his interest and expertise in modern statistical research methods, and in their application in chronic disease epidemiology.
