Personal profile


I am an academic gastroenterologist with an interest in the epidemiology of premalignant and malignant upper gastrointestinal disease. A key theme of my research is the application of epidemiological methods using routinely collected health data to develop interventions to improve outcomes in patients with upper gastrointestinal malignancy. My research background and training are in clinical epidemiology, including pharmacoepidemiology, clinical trials and systematic reviews. I am deputy director of the Norwich Academic Foundation Programme and module co-lead for the year 1 (MBBS) Medical Research Module.
