Personal statement

I am a clinical pharmacist by training. My research interest is pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Utilisation Research in cardiovascular, diabetes and antibiotics areas as well as adherence/persistence to medications using secondary database analysis and patient level data through applying various statistical and analytical techniques.

I am also interested in Health service research and evaluating the impacts of health policies and clinical guidelines. I am happy to collaborate with other researchers and academics both nationally and internationally. The events and conferences that I regularly attend are EuroDURG and ICPE.
