Speaker: Milensu Shanyinde, University of Oxford
Title: My career path to clinical trial senior statistician
My name is Milensu and I completed an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Statistics at Plymouth University in 2009 followed by a Master’s degree in Medical Statistics at Southampton University. Following this, I worked as a statistician in cancer clinical trials. I am now a PhD candidate at University College London in the final stages of completing my thesis. My research examines the complication of managing HIV in relation to Hepatitis C in persons seen for routine clinical care in Italy. I also work part time as a clinical trial statistician at Oxford University working on various studies related to primary care research.
In this seminar I talk about my journey post the Bachelor’s degree and how I found myself working as statistician in the field of clinical trials in academia. Working as a clinical trial statistician can be extremely rewarding and one of my recent highlight is being one of the statisticians working on a nationwide study to find COVID-19 treatments.
