Personal profile

Research Focus

I am a Queen's Vice Chancellor's Fellow and a Cancer Research UK Fellow working within the Cancer Epidemiology Research Group at the Centre for Public Health. My research interests are in the field of pharmacoepidemiology and cancer epidemiology

My main research areas draw upon large electronic healthcare databases and statistical methods to (1) identify commonly used medications that influence the risk of cancer and cancer outcomes and (2) evaluate the safety of cancer treatments.

My current research programme has a focus on urological cancers. I currently hold a Cancer Research UK Postdoctoral Fellowship (2017-2020) which aims to investigate the role of commonly used medications on renal cell carcinoma risk and progression, as well as other lifestyle factors, using large healthcare databases such as the Clinical Practice Research Datalink and the UK Biobank.
