My research explores how we can use routinely collected health data to improve health services and outcomes for people living with chronic diseases, and to investigate treatment effects.
I completed an MSc in epidemiology at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and a BSc in pharmacology and economics at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Prior to joining the LSHTM, I worked at McGill Global Health Programs and the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) in Hamilton, Canada. I continue to collaborate with researchers at PHRI.
I teach on MSc epidemiology and statistics modules such as Statistical Methods in Epidemiology and Extended Epidemiology. I also supervise MSc students who take on projects related to non-communicable disease management and treatment using electronic health records.
I am currently involved with several pharmacoepidemiology and health services projects:
- Improving acute cardiac care for patients with kidney disease through linkage of national audits in the UK (IAC-CKD)
- Personalised Medicine for Intensification of Treatment (PERMIT): the case for type 2 diabetes mellitus
- Quality and equity in cardiac care in chronic kidney disease: the promise of big data (QECKD)
- Bereavement amongst those with chronic kidney disease: does it affect outcomes?
- Stopping RASi after acute kidney injury and risk of adverse outcomes
- Organised Stroke Care Across Income Levels (OSCAIL)
