After graduating from the University of Nottingham with a degree in physics, Luke Stevens spent eight years (split between Nottingham and Melbourne) working for ClinPhone (now part of PAREXEL International). In this role he worked on the development of telephone- and web-based software systems for data collection, randomisation and trial supplies management in phase II, III and IV clinical trials. This was followed by a period as project manager for the development and deployment of two specimen management systems for biobanks.
Luke began as Data Management Coordinator at Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in July 2009, since when he has worked to improve the tools, systems and services available for supporting researchers' data management.
Luke Stevens is a REDCap expert at Murdoch Childrens, spending a sizeable portion of his time providing training, advice and assistance to researchers using the REDCap web-based database system.
Luke also provides support for other database systems, including WebSpirit (web-based clinical trial management software), Microsoft Access and web-based randomisation, and on other aspects of research data management, such as data management planning or resourcing a project data manager.
