Personal statement

My research interest is, broadly speaking, rational use of medicines, mainly focusing on pharmacoepidemiology – particularly drug utilisation – but also comprising related areas such as health policy. Topics include drugs used in cancer and cardiovascular disease; antimicrobial stewardship; drug adherence and treatment outcomes; and electronic record linkage. While mostly applying a range of statistical methods, I am also interest in mixed-methods approaches.

Analysing the links between fuel poverty, energy efficiency and health in Scottish communities
Mueller, Tanja (Principal Investigator) Calvillo Munoz, Christian (Principal Investigator) Megiddo, Itamar (Co-investigator)
Energy efficiency and the decarbonisation of heat have been identified as key areas to achieve the net zero targets set by the Scottish Government. However, these changes could translate into higher energy prices, putting further economic pressure on households. Also, impacts of fuel poverty are very likely to go beyond the lack of disposable income, potentially affecting health, work productivity, and general wellbeing.
This project aims to investigate links between housing type, energy efficiency ratings, economic status, fuel poverty, and health, with a focus on several diverse areas of Scotland. Generated hypotheses can then be used to inform future policies and as a basis for further research.

Network analysis of society’s attitudes to actions that may enable UK’s net zero ambition
Alabi, Oluwafisayo Titilope (Principal Investigator) Mueller, Tanja (Principal Investigator) Clark, Ruaridh (Principal Investigator)
The UK has committed to becoming a net zero economy by 2050. The magnitude of this target presents a political economy as well as a societal challenge, requiring significant changes in how people live their lives. Our aim is to investigate the response, attitudes and preferences across society to some of the actions that may enable the UK’s transition to net zero. We address current knowledge gaps on informing and preparing society for the potential transitional impacts, with the objective to present a novel and holistic approach that can support policymakers in delivering the transition in a way that is just and fair across society.
