Jonathan is Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology within the Nuffield Department of Population Health. After graduating in Mathematics in 1998, he studied statistics and epidemiology at MSc and PhD level before joining the Clinical Trial Service Unit & Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU) in 2004.
His main research involves studying the causes and prevention of cardiovascular diseases through the design, conduct and analysis of large-scale observational cohort studies, randomised controlled trials, and individual-participant-data meta-analyses of both types of study.
