Dr Helen Strongman
BA MSc PhD
I am an epidemiologist with expertise in using UK electronic health record data for research. Before joining LSHTM in 2017, I worked in the Observational Research team at the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) for 6 years. I now use CPRD data to investigate cardiovascular disease risk in cancer survivors. I have a PhD (by published work) in Health Sciences from Warwick University, a masters in Modern Epidemiology from Imperial College London, an undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University, and a portfolio of previous positions in global pharmaceutical market research agencies and the French Embassy in London.
I facilitate Extended Epidemiology and Statistical Methods in Epidemiology MSc practical sessions, am a course organiser for LSHTM's new Health Data Science MSc's introductory module, and deputy course organiser for the Systematic Reviews short course. I supervise in-house and distance learning MSc summer projects.
