Sarah Lay-Flurrie (nee Stevens)

MSc DPhil


Senior Statistician

  • Data Scientist

I work within the Department's Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) working group. We provide researchers across the University with advice and support regarding use of CPRD GOLD, an electronic health records database from UK general practices. I carry out data management and statistical analysis for various projects, most commonly in the field of cardiovascular disease and hypertension. I have particular expertise in multiple imputation methods and developing and validating risk prediction models.

More generally, I provide statistics support to the wider departmental research groups when required. I am deputy module co-ordinator for the Big Data Epidemiology module run as part of the MSc Evidence Based Healthcare and also teach on other selected modules.
