Research Summary
I am a clinically qualified and accredited paediatrician trained in epidemiology. My research programme involves working with clinicians, laboratory scientists, and health economists to address prognostic, diagnostic, and intervention questions related to screening and other interventions. My expertise is in the use of evidence synthesis methods, involving systematic reviews, meta-analysis, and modelling, and in the conduct of primary observational studies, controlled trials, and analyses of routinely collected data. My work aims to integrate all the available evidence to inform decisions about clinical practice and policy. Evidence synthesis, with an emphasis on evaluation of screening tests, is the common underlying theme to the two current strands of my work on infections and child abuse.
