Daniel Gallacher is a Research Fellow in Medical Statistics and Health Technology Assessment, joining Warwick Evidence in October 2017. He previously worked at Warwick Clinical Trials Unit as a NIHR Research Methods Fellow in October 2015, Daniel has gained experience in the design and analysis of clinical trials. Before his appointment at Warwick, Daniel completed a BSc in Mathematics and gained experience working in the supply chain of a Japanese multinational manufacturer. This was followed by the completion of a MSc in Medical Statistics from the University of Leicester.
Daniel’s research focuses on the use of survival models within Health Technology Assessment, and ensuring the uncertainty of both observed and extrapolated data is suitably accounted for during the decision making process.
He has previously investigated using mixed effects models to model partially clustered longitudinal trials data, using data from the Back Skills Training Study to compare different hierarchical models with varying degrees of heteroscedasticity. He has also contributed to the analysis and design of the AIR feasibility and main trials, and the COMPRESS study. Daniel also supported the review of pembrolizumab for urothelial cancer, and gained experience working with health economists during his time at the CTU.
Currently, Daniel provides statistical support to the Technology Appraisals undertaken by Warwick Evidence and to other ongoing research projects within the department. He enjoys investigating the statistical methods applied into economic evaluations.
