PhD-level statistician / data scientist.

I have worked as a statistician for 25 years in Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean. I have a long history of leading project data handling and analytics, including the management of solutions for robust and secure online data collection. I have published over 150 peer-reviewed articles on a broad range of chronic and infectious diseases. Working with academia, I have secured over 14 million US dollars of funding for health-related research.

I am committed to open-access data, and am developing an infrastructure for collecting and sharing Caribbean research data. I am statistical editor for the Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders group of the Cochrane Collaboration - an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare decision-making globally. I work with a range of Caribbean and international agencies involved in health and wellness.
