I am a statistician with an interest in using data linkage to exploit existing data sources for improving maternal and child health. My research to date has focussed on the complexities of linking large datasets, evaluation of linkage quality, and the use of electronic healthcare data to support clinical trials.
My current research aims to identify and measure determinants of childhood health service and longer-term health and educational outcomes, focussing on maternal influences and children born preterm. I hold a Wellcome Trust postdoctoral fellowship and work with Professor Jan van der Meulen in the Department for Health Services Research and Policy and collaborate with researchers in the Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research London and UCL (Professor Ruth Gilbert and Professor Harvey Goldstein). My fellowship has involved spending time at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Ontario, comparing infant outcomes recorded in data from Canada and England. I also collaborate on a study investigating healthcare data quality with researchers at the Administrative Data Research Centre for England (ADRCE) and the Health and Social Care Information Centre. I am the course leader for the ADRCE Introduction to Data Linkage.
