Anna is interested in how we can use routinely collected data to study the effectiveness and safety of commonly used medications. Her current research focuses on the use of self-controlled designs for the analyses of clinical trial extension studies; she is also involved in a number of pharmacoepidemiological studies in COVID-19.
