Jana joined the Newcastle MIC in 2018 as a clinical test evaluation methodologist focused on mixed methods. She has a PhD in Interdisciplinary Statistics, a BSc in Social Research, 13 years of industry experience and several years of teaching and research in academia. From 2010 she worked in higher education organisations as a researcher and lecturer, gaining ample experience in application and management of EU funded Interreg projects. She has a strong background in survey methodology and statistical modelling.
Within the MIC she has developed expertise in care pathway analysis and qualitative research. Her research usually focuses on applying interviews as the dominant technique to gather data from several stakeholders potentially involved in adoption of novel technology. These data are then analysed using qualitative analysis techniques, mainly thematic analysis. During her period at the MIC, she also gained substantial expertise in carrying out systematic reviews and meta-analysis. In addition, she regularly lectures on several modules within the Newcastle University Medical School.
