Senior Clinical Lecturer
1:173 Polwarth Building
I'm a senior 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 people, and translate clinical research into changes in how we provide care.
- Kidney health epidemiology
- Clinical decision making
- Replicability and reproducibility of research
- Health Inequities
ACHDS is a lovely team to work and study with. If you would like to know more about opportunities for research or collaboration, just get in touch.
