He is the Clinical Director of the Centre for Prognosis Research at Keele University, and leads a group of clinicians, data scientists and statisticians whose research interests focus around the use of routinely collected electronic healthcare data to inform the diagnosis, treatment and clinical outcomes of real-world patients with cardiovascular disease. His group uses national audit data derived from the national cardiovascular societies at the National Institute of Cardiovascular Outcomes Research (NICOR; https://www.ucl.ac.uk/nicor), data derived from primary care (Clinical Practice Research Datalink; https://www.cprd.com/intro.asp) aswell as large datasets from the US such as the Nationwide Inpatient Sample and National Readmissions Dataset to study outcomes in patients with cardiovascular diseases. His work focuses around studying clinical outcomes, complications and assessment of treatment efficacy of interventions / medical treatments using real world data derived from the national electronic healthcare records of patients with cardiovascular disease, aswell as prognostic modelling leading development of risk stratification tools used for national reporting in PCI and TAVR. He has published over 300 peer-reviewed papers using big data in populations with cardiovascular disease.
