I'm a post-doc clinical lecturer in nephrology at ACHDS. I aim to use data to challenge and strengthen the evidence that guides how we care for people with kidney diseases, understand how we can make better decisions that benefit patients, and translate clinical research into changes in how we provide care.

Research interests:

- Kidney disease data science
- Acute kidney injury epidemiology
- Risk prediction
- Replication / reproducibility of research
- Clinical decision making
