Kym joined the Research Institute for Primary Care and Health Sciences in June 2016, and has an active research and teaching role within the Centre for Prognosis Research. Prior to this she worked at the University of Birmingham in prognostic and diagnostic research.

Kym has a BSc (Hons) in Statistics from the University of Reading and an MSc in Medical Statistics from the University of Leicester. She later completed a PhD at the University of Birmingham in statistical methods for developing and validating prognostic models. She continues to work in the field of prognosis research, with a particular interest in individualised prediction, survival outcomes, and the synthesis of individual participant data (IPD) from multiple studies/sources.

She leads the Centre’s training course on ‘Statistical methods for risk prediction and prognostic models’, and is an Associate Editor of the journal
Diagnostic and Prognostic Research. 

Statistician on the HTA funded project ‘International Prediction of Pre-eclampsia IPD Collaborative Network (IPPIC), in which Individual Participant Data (IPD) from multiple studies are being used to validate published prediction models for the onset of pre-eclampsia in pregnant women.

Additionally, if none of the existing models perform well, the IPD will be used to develop and validate a new prediction model.

Statistical courses run at Keele University:

  • Statistical methods for risk prediction and prognostic models
  • Prognosis Research Summer School
  •  Small group teaching on the MBChB
