Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a Vice Chancellor’s Fellow within the Cancer Epidemiology Research Group at the Centre for Public Health at Queen's University Belfast. 

My research mostly focuses on the early detection of gastrointestinal cancers such as pancreatic cancer and oesophageal cancer, as well as pre-malignant conditions such as pancreatic cysts and Barrett’s oesophagus. My main experience is in the analysis of large datasets such as the UK Biobank to investigate methods to identify individuals at a high risk of cancer, in order to facilitate early detection.

I also have research interests in the role of modifiable risk factors (such as alcohol and nutrition) in cancer risk and progression.

I have over 3 years of experience working with the Northern Ireland Barrett's register, which is housed within the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry. I have applied similar population-based registry methodology to study colorectal polyps and endometrial hyperplasia epidemiology. I have also conducted many systematic reviews of lifestyle factors and biomarkers in cancer risk and progression. 

I have previously spent time conducting research at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA.
