Biography

The theme of my research is around improving the accuracy of cardiovascular risk assessment and management at the level of the individual.  Standard risk assessment is well established (at least in some countries), but larger steps need to be made towards more personalised risk estimation.  This will require more than one strategy, and more than one type of additional test to augment the classic cardiovascular risk factors.  It also requires a genuine integration of methodological and clinical knowledge.  My background is in clinical cardiac physiology and in medical statistics, and my research bridges cardiovascular medicine, advanced clinical technology, data science, applied statistics and epidemiology, with applications ranging from public health to advanced cardiology. There is enormous potential for further development of this combined approach to cardiovascular research.
