Contribution of community-acquired, healthcare associated and hospital-acquired bloodstream infections in children admitted to NHS hospitals in England
My PhD aims to identify risk factors to distinguish between community-acquired (CA), healthcare-associated (HCA) and hospital-acquired (HA) bloodstream infections in children. National antimicrobial therapy guidance is based in the distinction between CA and HA infections but is not underpinned by national, evidence-based paediatric data.

Linking HPA and Hospital Episode Statistics paediatric data: Methodology considerations
Oral presentation, Health Protection Agency Conference
Prior to starting my part-time PhD at ICH, I began working (and continue to work) as an epidemiologist for the Health Protection Agency in the Department of Healthcare-associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance (HCAI & AMR).
I have predominantly worked on bacterial infectious diseases in the healthcare setting and I have also begun to gain experience of data linkage.
