Main research interests are related to cognition, mental health, and cancer. The applications of complex analytical techniques to explore survey data are other areas of interest, and stems from the mathematical background that Jane possesses.
Jane was awarded a PhD scholarship at the Institute of Cancer Research: Royal Cancer Hospital, which led to the development of mathematical models of the natural history of colon and rectal adenocarinoma and their use to predict the effect of different screening strategies. She obtained a PhD degree from the Institute of Cancer Research in 1998.
Research publications have included those on the epidemiology of chronic diseases, and the development and application of mathematical models.
Currently, involved in projects utilising data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA), Health Survey for England (HSE), and PRO-AGE (PRevention in Older people - Assessment in GEneralists' practices).
Primary or secondary supervisor of PhD students within the Institute, and contributes to MSc programmes within the Department, and the public health curriculum within the MBBS.
Welcomes enquiries from potential PhD students interested in :
- health inequalities within ageing populations (longitudinal survey data and analyses);
- investigation of predictors for chronic diseases/conditions;
- natural history of and mortality from chronic diseases/conditions;
- cancer, cognitive, and mental health epidemiology.
