Biography


I qualified as a General Practitioner in 2008, and gained an MSc in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2012.

Research Groups
Research Themes
Research Summary

My chief research interests are ethnic differences in diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity. I have investigated these topics using data from SABRE, a multi-ethnic cohort study, and UK Biobank, the UK's largest cohort, since 2012. Additionally, I coordinated the UK Biobank diabetes outcomes adjudication group, convened to create operational definitions of diabetes for the UK Biobank study.

I am currently undertaking a PhD, funded by Diabetes UK, which aims to compare prescribing patterns and effectiveness of medication for type 2 diabetes in the UK's three main ethnic groups.


Teaching Summary

In 2009-11, I taught on the women's health, mental health and introductory clinical courses for year 3-4 MBBS, in addition to supervising Primary Care BSc students at UCL. More recently, I have taught epidemiology on the Cardiovascular studies BSc at Imperial College.
