Biography

Heather is an epidemiologist with a first degree in pharmacy. She joined UCL in 2008 on a four-year MRC funded PhD programme, and completed her PhD entitled 'HIV-infected childbearing women in Europe: health treatment and care' supervised by Dr Claire Thorne, Dr Mario Cortina-Borja and Dr Claire Townsend at the Centre for Paediatric Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Heather continues to work on several projects related to the epidemiology of HIV and viral hepatitis in pregnant women and children.

Research Summary

Heather's PhD on the health, treatment and care of HIV-positive childbearing women in Western Europe and Ukraine used data from two observational studies led by Dr Claire Thorne - the European Collaborative Study on HIV-infected pregnant women and their children, and the Ukrainian Cohort Study of HIV-infected childbearing women - as well as additional survey data. Areas of investigation included missed opportunities for prevention of mother-to-child transmission, adherence to antiretroviral therapy during pregnancy and postnatally, and co-infections and cervical cancer. In on-going work, particular interests include antenatal screening and health / disease progression of women with HIV and viral hepatitis.
