- DPhil Student in Primary care
My DPhil work focuses on reducing delays in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma. Myeloma is one of the most difficult and challenging cancers to diagnose, and patients experience substantial delays before being referred to secondary care. My aim is the development and evaluation of a diagnostic algorithm which could potentially reduce delays and improve prognosis.
I have a BSc. in Mathematics from University of Manchester and an MSc. in Medical Statistics from University College London.
