As a Data Manager within the Ludwig Institute I act as a link between data collection within the NHS and data usage for research within the University. I particularly work with the clinical teams involved in oesophageal and gastric cancer care, and with Ludwig-based researchers who have an interest in these tumour types.
My role involves designing and developing databases, extracting and analysing data from patient health records, and providing researchers with pertinent information about a patient’s cancer treatment to aid the interpretation of analyses carried out on donated blood and tumour samples.
Before working at Ludwig I spent four and a half years as a Data Manager in the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, where I coordinated all aspects of data collection, entry and quality control for the INTERBIO-21st Study and the INTERGROWTH-21st Project across 12 research sites around the world.
I hold a BSc in Statistics (First Class Honours) from the University of Bath and have also previously worked in the Statistical Enquiries Service for NHS Blood and Transplant, and as an Information Analyst for psychology services at the Maudsley Hospital in South London.
