Born in 1986 in Iran’s capital – Tehran, I always had a passion for numbers and the mysteries of mathematics. Hence, I choose to pursue a career in Statistics as I agree with those who believe it is one of the top essential skill of the new century. The journey through all statistical analyses are similar; it starts with a research question, a suitable design is employed, data are collected, graphical and numerical summaries are generated, an appropriate statistical model is fitted, and the results are written up (in different ways depending on the audience). The post design and data collection stages can be classified into three principal steps namely Visualise, Model and Translate.
From the time I have met Prof. John Newell and Prof. John Hinde who introduced the concepts of ‘translational statistics’, I have dedicated myself to produce new numerical, graphical and model summary tools. This aim to facilitate the integration of Biostatistics within clinical research and to enhance communication of research findings in a factual matter to diverse audiences (e.g. policy makers, patients, and the media).
