I completed the MSc in Epidemiology at LSHTM in 2007 and have since been working as a Research Fellow in the Department of Non-Communicable Disease Epidemiology. In 2014 I completed my PhD on the use of electronic health records to investigate the role of acute inflammation and infection in vascular disease. Prior to joining LSHTM, I completed a BA in Experimental Psychology at Oxford University in 2001, worked as a Research Assistant in Music Psychology at Trinity College of Music and completed a Diploma in Development Studies at Birkbeck in 2006.
I am a tutor on the MSc in Epidemiology and a seminar leader on Basic Epidemiology and the Intensive Course in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics.
My research focuses on the role of inflammation and infection in cardiovascular disease using electronic health records from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD), Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) and the US Medicare Claims Database.
