I initially trained as a Biochemist, graduating from Bristol University with a BSc (Hons) in 1998. I subsequently completed an MSc in Information Technology at Glasgow University. I have 10 years experience working on technology and processes relating to the licensing and regulation of medicines. In 2010 I completed the MSc Epidemiology at LSHTM and completed my PhD at LSHTM in October 2015.

Teaching

I am a tutor on the DL Statistical Methods in Epidemiology MSc module (EPM202) and am co-Course Organiser for the Certificate of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance (PEPI).

Research

I have a general interest in the use of data collected as part of routine clinical care for studies of epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology. My current main area of research focuses on the use of randomised controlled trial individual patient data for optimising the study of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) drug treatment effects within UK primary and secondary care. Other research I am involved in includes quantification of the risk of serious drug-induced liver injury associated with a range of drug treatments, and a number of studies on Ebola using data collected as part of clinical care during and after the 2013-16 West African outbreak.
