Kate Mansfield

I came to research from clinical medicine via an unconventional route including computer programming, osteopathy and yoga teaching. My first experience using routinely collected GP records aimed to identify a group of people with a controversial chronic pain condition. I am now using electronic health record data to investigate kidney disease.
