Professional Interests

Janet is Biostatistician whose main research interests are in the use and extensions of statistical methods in epidemiological studies, and the communication of biostatistics to non-statisticians. Her clinical research interests are in pediatrics, especially preterm birth, cancer and long-term conditions. Her main methodological interest is in making outcomes clinically meaningful and accessible to non-statisticians. She has written three biostatistics books for non-statistical researchers including the 'Oxford Handbook of Medical Statistics', 'Presenting Medical Statistics'' both of which are in 2nd editions. She previously led biostatistics at King's College London and now holds an Emeritus position there.
