Danielle Newby

B.Sc, PhD

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am an early career dementia researcher with an interdisciplinary background in epidemiology, machine learning and pharmacology. Since April 2016, I have been working as a post-doctorate researcher in the informatics team of the Translational Neuroscience and Dementia Research Group jointly led by Sir Professor Simon Lovestone and Professor Noel Buckley. I am currently the regional co-lead of the Thames valley DEMON network ( which is a network applying data science and artificial intelligence to dementia research.

My main areas of research within the team involve the analysis of real-world data such as medical electronic health records (EHR) datasets in order to characterise the role of certain diseases, their risk factors, and drug treatments with dementia risk and cognitive decline. By understanding these relationships this will provide an evidence base to support public health intervention for dementia prevention. 

I am currently collaborating on numerous health and social care projects within and outside the Department of Psychiatry including providing statistical expertise and data analysis to gain insights into young adult mental health.
