I trained in Medicine before going on to do a Masters in Global Public Health under a Fulbright Scholarship and a PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics under a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellowship.
My current work concentrates on geographical variations in cardiovascular disease in England. I use large, routinely collected datasets to pick out patterns of variation after correcting for noise. I also look at patterns of disease clustering for morbidities associated with cardiovascular disease. I work part-time as a clinical Consultant Cardiologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, and help to work out the clinical and policy reasons for the statistical findings of our cutting edge group.
