Jennifer is the Director of Statistical Consultancy in Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford. She has a BSc in Mathematics and Statistics and a MSc in Statistics, both from Lancaster University, and a PhD from the University of Warwick. Her work is primarily focussed on developing novel statistical methodologies for the analysis of clinical trial data, particularly in the field of cardiovascular disease. Most recently she has concentrated on investigating methods for handling recurrent heart failure hospitalisations and in September 2013 was awarded a three year NIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship to pursue research into developing methodology for the analysis of repeat hospitalisations in patients with heart failure where the associated (possibly censored) time-to-death is a potentially informative dropout time.
She is a highly active member of the Royal Statistical Society and was appointed as their Guy Lecturer for 2014. She currently sits on the Royal Statistical Society Council and is their Vice-President for External Affairs. Jennifer is an experienced science presenter and can regularly be found talking all things statistics in schools, theatres and pubs, including being a regular speaker for Maths Inspiration. Notable media appearances include the BBC production “Long Live Britain”, the ITV documentary “Mystery Map”, as well as many interviews on BBC Radio.
