In November 2019, I joined the University as a Research Statisitician based in Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine in the Faculty of Medicine and Health. I am working on the Yorkshire Specialist Register of Cancer in Children and Young People, using population-based cancer registration data to investigate the epidemiology of cancer in children and young people and describe outcomes for long-term survivors.
Prior to this I obtained my undergraduate degree (BSc) in Biological Sciences at The University of Liverpool. I graduated with a first class degree in July 2018. I then went on to obtain a Masters of Research (MRes) degree in Epidemiology at Newcastle University (Distinction). My research during this time focused on exploiting data from a large prospective cohort of over 60’s, to enhance understanding of the associations between visceral obesity and cardiometabolic risk factors. Findings from this study will inform evidence-based intervention programmes to improve the cardiometabolic profiles and reduce the cardiovascular morbidity burden in this already vulnerable population.
