Biography

Andrea graduated from Strathclyde University with a BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences. She received her PhD in Statistics and Modelling Sciences in 1996, after which she took up a post as a statistician with the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ASLPAC) in the department of Social Medicine, University of Bristol. After a 3 year Wellcome Trust Training Fellowship in Mathematical Biology, and a secondment to the Laboratory of Statistical Genetics at Rockefeller University, New York City, she took up a Research Fellow post at the Paediatric Epidemiology and Child Health (PEACH) Unit at Glasgow University. In 2008, Andrea was appointed a Lecturer in Statistics at the University of Glasgow Dental School, and a year later was promoted to Senior Lecturer. She is a Chartered Statistician and Chartered Scientist (Royal Statistical Society), and is a statistical reviewer for Archives of Disease in Childhood. She is also a member of the Cochrane Oral Health group. She provides support for research design and statistical analysis to the 2 research groups within the Dental School, and leads on the teaching of Evidence- Based Practice to dental undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Research interests

Dr Sherriff leads a research theme on oral health of older people within Community Oral Health.  She is involved in a Glasgow based cohort study of oral health in nursery and school aged children and in the evaluation of the national Childsmile programme. She has experience in designing and conducting cohort studies and analyzing large datasets, and is involved in a number of Cochrane Systematic Reviews.
