 Background

Data Manager for Dr Foster Unit at Imperial College London. The unit's work comes under the research themes Patient Safety, Effective Use of Patient Data, and Healthcare Performance. I worked with direction from Professor Paul Aylin.

The work involved using existing data collected within the NHS for the purposes of analysis and surveillance. This informed applied research, raise healthcare standards, and predict risk. I worked closely with Telstra Health - Dr Foster Limited and NHS Digital.

Data Manager for The National Institute for Health Research Health Protection Research Unit (NIHR HPRU) in Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI) and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) at Imperial College London, under the research theme Applied Data Linkage - Syndromic Surveillance and Modelling.

Analyst Programmer for the MRC Centre of Epidemiology for Child Health at University College London. I worked on several projects including: helping to develop and maintain epiLab (a secure virtual research environment), project managing SERPent (investigating the use of DDI metadata to represent clinical studies), epiLab-SS (an ISO-27001 certified research environment). I also trained and supported research groups on electronic data capture and management (databases, data integration, REDCap, NADA).
