I am an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Public Health at the Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research. My main research interest is using linked electronic health records and biological data to investigate the effect of infections on vascular and neurodegenerative disease to inform personalised prevention. I was recently awarded a Wellcome Trust intermediate clinical fellowship which will be held at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine from October 2016. I also contribute to policy work as a visiting fellow at the Foundation for Genomics and Population Health in Cambridge.
After qualifying in medicine in Edinburgh in 2003, I spent three years as a junior hospital doctor before becoming an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Public Health in 2006. On the North London Public Health training scheme I have worked in diverse local and national roles including at Camden PCT, the North West London Health Protection Team, the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust and the Department of Health. From 2009-2012 I held an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship to examine the role of influenza as a trigger for acute myocardial infarction.
