Dental School


I teach research methodology and statistics here at the School of Dentistry.  I deliver lectures, practical classes and one-to-one tuition on various aspects of the research process, including the use of statistical software.  I am currently a co-author on several research outputs produced by staff and students.


I consult on research projects being run by staff and students. Several of these projects have already resulted in publications with me as a named author, while others are planned to do so in the future. Some highlights of my research involvement are: 

  • Two PhD projects and one clinical trial looking at the efficacy of different types of orthodontic appliance
  • A big data project looking at infant mortality associated with cleft lip and palate throughout the world 
  • PhD and Master’s Forensic dentistry projects for estimating age and gender from tooth and skull morphology
