Key Research Interests and Expertise
I am a Clinical Senior Lecturer, specialising in epidemiology of rheumatic diseases. My PhD investigated risk factors for onset and progression amongst individuals diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and giant cell arteritis (GCA) and subsequently I was appointed as a NIHR Clinical Lecturer whilst I finished my specialist training in rheumatology. I am an active member of consortia and international groups including the UK Biobank Eye and Vision Consortium and the Outcome Meseasures in Rheumatology (OMERACT) working groups. I investigate aetiological hypotheses using statistical models. My current interests include investigating comorbidity in PMR, GCA and inflammatory polyarthritis and using retinal images to validate vascular disease states in these conditions.
