Ana Belen Espinosa-Gonzalez (LMS, MSc, PhD) is a general practitioner and a part-time post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London. She is interested in health care service organisation and resource management. For her PhD, which she studied in Imperial College London and completed in April 2020, she analysed how the structure of primary care may impact professional behaviour and care outputs, developed a taxonomy of primary care structure using WHO European Region country cases and compared the taxa on non-communicable diseases outputs and outcomes.

Currently, she is working on the RECAP (Remote COVID-19 Assessment in Primary Care) project, a joint study between imperial College London, King's College London and University of Oxford aimed at developing a risk prediction tool to support decision-making and management of COVID-19 patients by general practitioners in the primary care setting.
