I am a DPhil candidate supervised by Prof Philippa Matthews and Prof Ellie Barnes. My background is in epidemiology, and my research is broadly focused on improving characterisation and quantification of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) morbidity and mortality burdens in the United Kingdom. I am interested in investigating treatment eligibility and coverage across the UK HBV population, and in identifying novel risk factors for liver cancer and end-stage disease in chronic HBV infection. I utilise both primary care (https://www.qresearch.org/research/approved-research-programs-and-projects/characteristics-of-chronic-hepatitis-b-associated-with-cirrhosis-and-cancer/) and secondary care (https://hic.nihr.ac.uk/) electronic health record databases to undertake my research.
I am also a Peer Supporter within both the Nuffield Department of Medicine and wider Medical Sciences Division, and I'm very happy to be contacted with any welfare, wellbeing or related questions or concerns, or just to have an informal chat!
