I trained in Medicine at the University of Glasgow graduating in 1996 and spent 5 years working in hospital medicine in Glasgow. I had the opportunity to spend a year Research Fellowship at the Boston Collaborative Drug Surveillance Programme, University of Boston, USA studying Clinical and Pharmacoepidemiology. On return to the UK in 2002, I joined the University of Aberdeen as a Clinical Lecturer in Public Health and completed specialist training before being appointed as a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Public Health and Honorary NHS Consultant in 2007. I was awarded a personal Chair in Public Health in 2015.
I have more than 20 years of experience harnessing electronic health record data for research and population health surveillance. Working with colleagues, my research has included real world data pharmaceutical research and now focuses on understanding complexity in health and care of long term conditions, the wider determinants of health and how we use data at a ‘hyper-local’ level to support learning health systems.
I am the Director of the Aberdeen Centre for Health Data Science, a wonderful team of enthusiastic researchers, analysts and support staff who form our multidisciplinary centre.
As a Consultant in Public Health, I was re-deployed full time to work for NHS Grampian as part of the COVID pandemic response and lead the local data response including supporting the establishment of a Scottish NHS analyst community (SCODAS) to share learning. This has placed me in the exciting position of bridging the gap between research and application, so I am continuing in this role deliberately blurring the boundaries to enable change.

I am a health data scientist, specialising in public health. I understand how to use administrative health and government data to answer questions about health, care and health inequalities.
I have applied this methodological expertise to a wide range of clinical areas and currently this includes kidney disease, musculoskeletal disease, infectious disease and mental health. I use these methods to understand disease epidemiology, how care is delivered and accessed and how the wider determinants of health impact and drive health inequalities.
