Professor of Health Data Epidemiology

  • Interim Director, Big Data Institute
  • BDI Associate Head (Translation and Culture)
  • Applied Health Research Unit co-lead

In 2019, Eva moved to Oxford as a Professor of Health Data Epidemiology within the Big Data Institute and Oxford Population Health.  She works in the field of health data research with an interest in national cancer datasets.

In 2008 Eva was awarded a Cancer Research UK Career Development Fellowship and made a Professor of Cancer Epidemiology in 2015. She has a portfolio of research based around the use of linked datasets to investigate the management of colorectal cancer and so generate evidence that will drive improvements in care and outcome.  

Eva studied Neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh (1993-1998) before undertaking a PhD in Cancer Epidemiology and Health Services Research at the University of Leeds (2001-2004). After a short period working in public health at the University of Newcastle, she then returned to Leeds to work with the regional cancer registry and, subsequently, the National Cancer Intelligence Network to undertake large-scale population-based studies based on linked administrative health datasets.
