Anoop was born in Nairobi and grew up in Kenya moving to the United Kingdom in 1998. He studied Medicine at the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 2006. His postgraduate training in internal medicine was completed in the South East of Scotland after which he joined the Centre of Cardiovascular Science at the University of Edinburgh in 2011. During this time he completed his Masters in Public Health and PhD in cardiovascular epidemiology.

His main research aims are to understand the epidemiological trends in the incidence and diagnosis of common cardiovascular pathologies. He is involved in multi-centre cluster randomized clinical trials using 'big data' to evaluate how changes in health systems can improve outcomes in patients with cardiovascular disease. He primary focus now is in global cardiovascular health especially in low- and middle-income settings.

Research

My research interests have been in two primary areas; a) the use of routine health records in Scotland in delivering clinical trials and observational studies within cardiovascular medicine and b) evaluating environmental and chronic infections as risk factors for cardiovascular disease in low- and middle-income nations.
