Highly accomplished and driven executive-level Biostatistician with a broad knowledge of statistical techniques for various types of clinical trial study design and research projects. With an in-depth knowledge of SAS programming, including CDISC, SDTM and AdaM, I excel at designing and overseeing clinical trial production of data sets and tables, figures and listings.I am a skilled verbal communicator and can explain complex statistical concepts to non-statisticians.
Successfully provided biostatistics support to clinical trial and research services in a variety of therapeutic areas leading to IND and NDA submissions in the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
