Who am I?

Simplified Data is led by me, Danielle Bodicoat. I’m an experienced medical statistics & writing consultant.

I carry out all reviews & consultancy myself. I work with associates when a second reviewer is needed for eligibility screening and data extraction.

I’ve got a solid theoretical grounding thanks to a 1st class BSc in Mathematics with Statistics, an MSc in Medical Statistics (Distinction) which I was awarded a scholarship for by GlaxoSmithKline, & a PhD in Epidemiology.

I have over 12 years of applied experience with a proven track record including 80+ peer-reviewed publications (see the full list here).

I’ve spent years designing, conducting and supervising systematic reviews, meta-analysis, and mixed treatment comparisons. I’ve also organised and delivered training days on these topics.

While working on my research, I had to use a statistical test that was unfamiliar to me which led us to contact Danielle from Simplified Data. We used the mini package provided by her which included 30 minutes email correspondence, followed by an hour video meeting then a 30 minute follow-up via email. I found that this method allowed us to ask all the questions we had, and the demonstration on video was especially helpful since we got to ask questions and discuss ideas on the spot which was a good learning experience. The follow-up email helped especially wrap up everything. Now that we’ve covered all the basics about Generalized Linear Models, I feel more confident working on my research due to the help we have received from Danielle. What I liked best was how smooth and simple everything went. Statistics can look daunting to newbies but Danielle provided answers in very simple terms and I would highly recommend contacting her if you need any help with research or statistics.
