I studied medicine at Universidad Industrial de Santander, Colombia (1999) and continue to train in cardiovascular sciences at Fundacion Cardiovascular de Colombia (1999-2002). I worked as a clinical research fellow at the centre for clinical pharmacology, UCL (2002-2005) and then joined LSHTM (2005-2015) where I obtained my PhD in Epidemiology (2009). In 2013, I was appointed as Professor of Epidemiology at LSHTM. Since 2015, I worked at the Farr Institute of Health Informatics, of which I am the Deputy Director.
I am the Director of the British Women's Heart and Health Study, Co-ordinating Editor of the Cochrane Heart Group, Co-PI of the GenPE study (www.genpe.org) and co-lead, together with Prof. Aroon Hingorani the UCLEB (UCL-LSHTM-Edinburgh-Bristol) consortium of cohorts.
My teaching experience expands for 16 years and include teaching at undergraduate medical students in Colombia and post-graduate student in the UK. I have been involved in a wide range of formal and informal teaching activities at UCL and LSHTM including module director of epidemiology of non-communicable diseases, and lecturer in methods in epidemioloogy, genetic epidemiology, and more recently in health informatics and drug discovery.
