Prior to my current position, I was employed at The University of Reading, UK (2000 - 2007) where I worked within a group called the Medical and Pharmaceutical Statistics Research Unit (MPSRU). The MPSRU was a self-financing unit that developed and validated statistical methods for the design and analysis of clinical trials. The unit obtained funding by creating and presenting workshops on various advanced statistical topics, conducting consultancy and research work for pharmaceutical companies, and contributing to the academic teaching within the university.
