Analysis and Management of Large-Cohort Real-World Data for Dementia-Focused Research

Multi-Disciplinary Research & Data Management

I am a senior researcher working across multiple projects as a psychometric analyst for the European Prevention of Alzheimer's Disease (EPAD) study and a multi-disciplinary analyst for Dementias Platform UK (DPUK) in the research group of Professor John Gallacher, director of DPUK. I am also senior data manager for DPUK, a data repository platform for over 2 million participants across 45+ population and disease-specific cohorts (https://www.dementiasplatform.uk/). I am programme lead for the DPUK datathon intiative, lead for the DPUK user group - DPUK Reach, programme lead for the DPUK data curation project and scientific lead for an international DPUK collaborative AD project. I am also scientific reviewer for DPUK Data Portal research applications. 

My psychometric work includes conducting Item Response Theory (IRT) analyses on mental health, lifestyle and healthcare scale data, investigating item-level information and scale reliability. I also utilise Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) to explore comorbidities such as cognition and mental health, child adversity and adult biomedical outcomes and dementia. My previous research focused on the cognitive predictors of falls and frailty in older adults, and poor mental health as a comorbidity with cognitive decline and dementia.
