Debbie is an Early Career Research Fellow at CTSU. Her research involves investigating the association between adiposity and coronary heart disease using observational and genetic epidemiological techniques in large cohort studies.
Before joining Oxford, Debbie completed a BSc with first class honours in Biomedical Science from the University of Aberdeen in 2015. She went on to complete the MSc in Global Health Science at Nuffield Department of Population Health, Oxford. During this time, she travelled to Guangzhou to undertake a summer placement investigating the risk factors for preterm birth in a large urban population in Southern China. After the MSc, Debbie joined CTSU in 2016 to complete her DPhil in Population Health Science. Her DPhil involved investigating adiposity and coronary heart disease in 500 000 UK adults using the UK Biobank.
Debbie also has experience in medical policy through the Academy of Medical Sciences, and outbreak response with the World Health Organisation in Papua New Guinea.
