Biography

I qualified from Edinburgh University and pursued a career in Paedatrics & Child Health with positions in Scotland and New Zealand.  More recently, I have also worked in a research capacity within the Vaccine Trials Group, Perth, Western Australia. I completed my postgraduate paediatric training in 2012 and am currently working for both the University of Dundee and NHS Tayside.  

In my clinical role I am acting as lead for the paediatric endocrinology service in a long-term locum capacity.

Research

My interest in issues relating to child public health has led to involvement in a number of research areas including: childhood obesity, health informatics and the use of routinely collected data; vaccine trials and community surveillance; and engaging the public in epidemiological research.

My current research work involves the development, implementation and evaluation of a clinical decision support system within an electronic health record and forms the basis of my MD.  This project is in conjuction with NHS Education for Scotland and is funded by the Digital Health Institute.

Teaching

I am an active member of the Child Health undergraduate teaching committee and have regular undergraduate and postgraduate teaching commitments throughout the academic year.  I have lead responsibility for the child health component of the Systems in Practice phase of the undergraduate curriculum.
