The Methods Matter Podcast, Episode Four- Multilevel Modelling


Bio: "Adam Smith was born in the north, a long time ago. He wanted to write books, but ended up working in the NHS, and at the Department of Health. He is now Programme Director in the Office of the NIHR National Director for Dementia Research (which probably sounds more important than it is) at University College London. He has led a number of initiatives to improve dementia research (including creating Dementia Researcher, Join Dementia Research & ENRICH), as well as pursuing his own research interests. He also write blogs, hosts podcasts and is passionate about improving the lives of people living with dementia and supporting early career researchers. In his spare time, he grows vegetables, builds Lego & spends most of his time drinking too much coffee and squeezing technology into his house."
