Research summary

Iam an MRC Investigator and Honorary Consultant in GeriatricMedicine, previously holding a Wellcome Trust Intermediate Clinical Fellowship. My primary interest is the relationship between delirium and/or acuteillness and trajectories of cognitive decline in largepopulation-representative studies.

I am the PI for the Delirium and Population Health Informatics Cohort (DELPHIC) study, which tracks cognitive and functional status before, during and after hospitalisation in a population sample of older people.
