I am currently pursuing a PhD, funded by the Perros Trust, at Bristol Medical School, University of Bristol. My project investigates whether commonly prescribed drugs can be repurposed for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, using data from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink. My research interests include pharmacoepidemiology and the use of electronic health records
