My PhD project is supervised by Katie Harron, Ruth Blackburn and RobAldridge from UCL Institute of Health Informatics, I would be assessing and evaluating data linkage of the Million Migrant Study(linked administrative data in 1.5 million migrants in the UK), UK Longitudinal Linkage Collaboration (UKLLC, linkage of 20+ UK longitudinal cohorts with NHS health administrative data), and ECHILD, using Splink,an Open-source Python library developed by the Ministry of Justice. 

I hope to shed light on, and suggest alternatives to the practices in data linkage that might lead to biases that disproportionately exclude marginalised communities, such as people from minority ethnic groups, in health research.

My background is in mental health research and psych/social epidemiology. I previously worked at King’s College London, ESRC Centre for Society and Mental Health as a data scientist/research assistant.   

I hold an MSc in Clinical Mental Health Science from Division of Psychiatry, University College London.
