My main area of research is stroke epidemiology. My research is aimed at to reducing ethnic disparities in health, with a focus on prevention of stroke and related vascular conditions including dementia. This relates to the objectives of MedTech CoRE in that it uses public health research along with technological advances into applications to improve health outcomes, combining research with the commercial industry. Specifically, the development of the Stroke Riskometer App as a tool for stroke and other non-communicable disease prevention allows both public health research and commercialisation ventures to take place simultaneously.
