NameDr Georgia Ntani
RoleSenior Research Fellow
Georgia completed her diploma (5-year degree) in Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens in Greece, before completing an MSc in medical statistics at the University of Southampton. She then joined the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit in 2010 as a medical statistician mainly working with the research team of occupational epidemiology. In 2017 she obtained a PhD in medical statistics looking at approaches to the analysis of clustered data arising from multicentre studies. Since then, Georgia has been working at the MRC LEU as a senior research fellow researching the effects of musculoskeletal problems and related disability.
The specific projects that she is involved in include: cultural effects of musculoskeletal pain and related disability; the associations between work and health among people around the age of retirement; short and long term outcomes for patients going back to work after hip/knee arthroplasty; effects on post-operative return to work timescales for patients undergoing carpal tunnel release. Even though Georgia’s main research interests focus on the effects on musculoskeletal pain, she is also particularly interested in the methodological aspects of epidemiological investigation.
