Bio

I am an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Bristol Medical School, where I lead a programme of research to examine the relationship between cholesterol and dementia risk. My core methodological interest is the re-analysis of existing data sources, including large databases of electronic health records (EHR) and academic literature, to provide better answers to clinical research questions.

In addition to my academic role, I am a freelance data scientist, helping clients in both the private and charity sectors to make data-informed decisions.

I am an enthusiastic R user/developer, and maintain several research-orientated open-source R packages including robvis and medrxivr, in addition to some smaller utility/learning packages (e.g. pathformatr).

Outside of work, I am an avid fan of running, LEGO and really terrible movies.
