venexiaI am currently pursuing a PhD in population health, funded by the Perros Trust, at the Bristol Medical School, University of Bristol. My project investigates whether commonly prescribed drugs can be repurposed for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, using data from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink. Prior to my PhD, I completed an MMath degree in Mathematics at the University of Leicester, UK with a year abroad at the University at Buffalo, USA. My research interests include instrumental variable analysis, pharmacoepidemiology, and the use of electronic health records.
