Kimberley is a Biostatistician and Clinical Trials specialist with an interest in complex psychological therapy treatments who joined King’s College London in June 2009. She holds an Honours degree in Biology and MSc in Microbiology and Virology from McMaster University, as well as a Master of Public Health from Oregon Health & Science University. She was awarded a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Doctoral Research Fellowship and graduated with a PhD in Biostatistics from King’s College London. Kimberley has extensive experience in clinical trials in mental health and other fields, encompassing the conduct, analysis and dissemination of several single and multi-centre clinical trials. Her interest is in the study of treatment mechanisms of psychological therapies/mediation analysis, including the novel application of longitudinal structural equation models to study mediation of treatment effects. To date this work has led to a greater understanding of therapeutic mechanisms and refinement of the treatments. It is also widely applicable to the study of treatments in other disease areas and public health interventions. Kimberley is also interested in structural equation, latent variable and longitudinal modelling more generally.
