Currently, I am doing an MPhil/PhD Cardiovascular Sciences degree program at UCL under the supervision of Professor Alun Hughes, Professor Rebecca Hardy and Dr Chloe Park.

My PhD involves incorporating novel cardiovascular measures in relation to adverse outcomes in populations with multiple risk factors predisposing to heart failure. I am working with a multidisciplinary team of expertise in various aspects of cardiometabolic disease and aging as well as with national and International collaborators.

I have a strong interest in clinical research and I am looking forward to contributing to the field in the near future. Lamia's full profile
