    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I am trained statistical epidemiologist with broad interest in building a career in biostatistics in developing countries, where well skilled biostatisticians are rare. My passion for numbers, saw me study applied statistics and epidemiology and work throughout my career in clinical research. Starting off as a data manager, I come face to face with the challenge of developing robust clinical trials data management systems to collect quality data affordably whilst still complying with regulatory standards. Now working as a biostatistician for large multicentre trials and cohort studies, I appreciate the need for robust statistical methods and broad underlying epidemiological and clinical knowledge. Thus, my interest in training, pushing for adoption and wide use of opensource data management systems and statistical software in resource poor countries.
