Jemma Hudson joined the unit as a statistician in 2014. Previously, Jemma graduated in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Liverpool in 2012 and obtained an MSc in Statistics at Lancaster University in 2013. Her current role involves working on randomised control trials and evidence synthesis projects. She completed her PhD in Applied Health Sciences at the University of Aberdeen in 2023. The PhD focused on interrupted time series evaluation and in particular what design and analysis approaches are being used in the healthcare and how are they reported. She also looked at what methods should be used when analysing an interrupted time series.
