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.
