Anna teaches on Extended Epidemiology, Basic Epidemiology and on the Professional Certificate in Pharmacoepidemiology. 


Anna is interested in how we can better use routinely collected data to study the effectiveness and safety of medications. Her current research uses self-controlled study designs to study COVID-19 vaccine safety, and explores how self-controlled studies can be applied to the analyses of clinical trial extension studies. She is also involved in a number of studies on the epidemiology of COVID-19 using the OpenSAFELY platform.
