BSc (Hons), MSc (with distinction)
I am currently working in the clinical trials unit (CTU) as a Medical Statistician.
I hold a BSc (hons) degree in Applied Biological Sciences and I have recently finished an MSc in Applied Statistics in Health Sciences at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. My masters thesis was to evaluate risk factors associated with a Surgical Site Infection (SSI) following a Caesarean section delivery.
My research interests include the determinants of health and disease and more precisely women's health. I also have a keen interest in nutritional epidemiology which studies the relationship between nutrition and health and the role of nutrition in the etiology of disease, in particular non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
Due to my biological background, I am also interested in the role of genetic and molecular factors in determining health and disease in various populations, and the interplay of these factors with environmental, lifestyle and nutritional factors.
