Research summary

I am interested in life course epidemiology and use of routinely collected health data (general practice databases and hospital admission records) to explore how parental factors (such as mental health) influence child outcomes.

I am currently working on a project in the Child Policy Research Unit (CPRU), using hospital admission records and primary care data to determine how primary care is associated with emergency use of secondary care services by children and young people.
