Rohini Mathur

I am an epidemiologist specializing in health equity research. I initially completed an undergraduate degree in public health at the University of Waterloo in Canada, followed by an MSc at LSHTM in reproductive and sexual health research. Prior to coming to LSHTM I worked at the Institute for Health and Social Policy at McGill University in Montreal, and at later at Queen Mary, University of London, where I conducted quality improvement research focussed on identifying and tackling health inequalities across east London. From 2011-2015 I completed an ESRC funded PhD at LSHTM investigating how electronic health records can be best used to examine ethnic inequalities in health outcomes in the UK at LSHTM. A key focus of my PhD was establishing the usability and completeness of ethnicity recorded in primary and secondary care databases in order answer substantive questions around ethnic differences in major chronic disease outcomes. Since my PhD, I have continued to focus my work on ethnic differences in diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and am involved in collaborative work with the UK Biobank study team at the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences. In 2017 I will commence a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship examining ethnic inequalities in trajectories of diabetes risk factor control and outcomes across the health care pathway.
