Biography

I’m a senior research associate at the University of Bristol, working in the Medical Research Council (MRC) Integrative Epidemiology Unit (IEU).

My current work focuses on the Health Foundation’s project entitled ‘social and economic consequences of health: causal inference methods and longitudinal, intergenerational data’, which is part of the Health Foundation’s Social and Economic Value of Health Programme.

My PhD aimed to systematically find an individual characteristic (e.g. age, height, ethnicity etc.) that was associated with both prostate cancer and prostate-specific antigen (PSA), to see whether we could improve PSA testing for prostate cancer. One day, I’ll actually publish this as a paper. This has been published now, woop!
