Karen Ooms

Executive Vice President and Head of Statistics
Karen Ooms is a statistician with over 30 years experience, including 20 years in clinical research and development. At the start of her career, she was lucky enough to join Rothamsted Experimental Station's Statistics Department, benefitting from the rich vein of knowledge developed there in experimental design from Fisher, survey methodology from Yates, and Generalised Linear Models from Nelder. Karen maintains a strong interest in statistical methodologies for design and analysis applied in clinical research, but also understands the importance of the collection of high quality data for appropriate interpretability of study results. This has led her to branch out to discover the world of centralized statistical monitoring and SDV.
