Research Summary

I am a statistician with an interest in using data linkage to exploit existing data sources for improving maternal and child health. My research to date has focussed on the complexities of linking large datasets, evaluation of linkage quality, and the use of electronic healthcare data to support clinical trials.

My current research aims to identify and measure determinants of childhood health service and longer-term health and educational outcomes, focusing on maternal influences and children born preterm. I hold a Wellcome Trust postdoctoral fellowship, which has involved spending time at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Toronto, comparing infant outcomes recorded in data from Canada and England. 

Teaching Summary

 I am the course leader for the ADRCE Introduction to Data Linkage.
