Current Research

Ross's research is on investigating the effect of lifestyle factors (BMI, smoking, and alcohol use) on response to biologic therapies in inflammatory arthritis using the EuroSpA collaboration of European registries in axial spondyloarthritis and psoriatic arthritis. This will involve the use of sophisticated statistical techniques for dealing with the problem of missing data, which is highly prevalent in large registry data.

Past Research

Ross has conducted statistical analysis for research on conditions of chronic widespread pain and axial spondyloarthritis.
