Personal profile


I am a British Heart Foundation Intermediate Research Fellow with expertise in clinical epidemiology, healthcare data and advanced statistical modelling based at the British Heart Foundation Centre for Cardiovascular Science at the University of Edinburgh. I have previously been a cardiac perfusionist in the Netherlands before undertaking a Masters degree and PhD in Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Maastricht. My PhD addressed sex differences in cardiac biomarkers, and in particular the use of sex-specific clinical decision limits for cardiac troponins to diagnose acute myocardial infarction. To gain complementary experience, I undertook two short working visits to Uppsala University in 2019 and 2020, and subsequently a visiting research fellowship at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Professor Nicholas Mills and Dr Anoop Shah. I was appointed as post-doctoral researcher at the University of Edinburgh in 2020.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, cardiac biomarkers and advanced statistical modeling. By bringing precision medicine to primary care, I aim to provide individualized strategies for the prevention of cardiovascular disease that will reduce inequalities in the provision of care.
