BSc, MSc, PhD
I joined the Nuffield Department of Population Health in 2014 to work as an epidemiologist for UK Biobank, a large cohort of half a million participants. This role involves providing scientific review of research applications, helping scientists maximise the use of the resource as well as contributing to enhancing the dataset (i.e. grant proposals).
I also collaborate on several research projects in UK Biobank to explore the determinants and consequences of a range of health-outcomes, with a focus on cancer, gastrointestinal conditions, kidney stones and dementia. Before joining the department I completed a PhD on ‘hormonal risk factors for late-onset dementia’ at the University of Exeter Medical School.
