She is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Primary Care and Public health and Director of the Global digital health unit at Imperial.

She leads a team of doctoral and postdoctoral researchers funded through the NIHR, ESRC and the Wellcome trust, addressing key questions in infection related and antimicrobial resistant infection (AMR). She holds a personal NIHR Career Development Fellowship which funds research evaluating interventions targeting AMR using routinely collected clinical data and novel statistical causal inference methods.

From 2015-2018 she was a Lecturer within the NIHR HPRU in HCAI and AMR at Imperial, and she maintains close collaboration with the unit.
