I am an epidemiologist with expertise in using electronic healthcare records. My undergraduate degree was in Human Sciences and in 2009 I came to LSHTM to complete an MSc in Epidemiology. Following the MSc I worked as a Research Assistant at the King's Centre for Military Health Research, investigating mental health outcomes among UK military personnel. I then completed a PhD at LSHTM, investigating risk factors for herpes zoster and postherpetic neuralgia using UK electronic healthcare records. I am now researching the role of persisting herpes viruses in neurological diseases of ageing.
I teach on the study units Statisitics for Epidemiology & Population Health and Statistical Methods in Epidemiology.
