A well-respected biostatistician specializing in cohort studies, causal inference, and multiple-treatment comparisons, Steve is experienced in network meta-analyses, health technology assessment submissions, and global health research. He provides project support via his strong mix of statistical expertise and innovative thinking, communications and critical thinking, and a solid management experience.
Steve is passionate about innovation, impact, and every step in between, continually striving to find and optimize the value of the stories that data can provide. A founding partner of RainCity Analytics, Steve was previously the head of biostatistics at Doctor Evidence and the director of research methods and statistics at Precision Xtract, where he spent seven years developing and growing the analytics team. In addition to leading evidence synthesis projects and providing scientific oversight, Steve has helped bring network meta-analyses to settings where they are seldom used, including an FDA submission, which was the first to use these methods, and reviews used by the World Health Organization to inform its HIV and HCV clinical and operational guidelines. Prior to his work at Precision Xtract, Steve served as a statistician at the Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS. He has also worked with international partners from both developing and developed nations, including Rwanda and Uganda, and in sub-Saharan Africa helping to bring world-class statistical capacities to settings that lack them. To date, he has published more than 85 peer-reviewed publications.
Steve holds a BSc in Probability and Statistics (with honours) from McGill University, an MSc in Statistics from the University of British Columbia, and a PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the University of British Columbia.
