I am a Consultant in the Health Analytics team, as well as an epidemiologist and a medical doctor with a research background in cancer prevention.

My previous roles at Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London focused on generating evidence to assess the effectiveness of and to identify areas for improvement in population-based health interventions. More recently I supported the UK Health Security Agency COVID-19 response. I am an author on more than 35 peer reviewed publications and have extensive experience designing and executing scientific studies using real world data.

I have a PhD in Cancer Epidemiology from the University of London, a Masters in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and an MD from the Mexican National University (UNAM).

Working with LCP feels like being part of a bigger team.  The collaborative approach is a breath of fresh air compared with previous advisors.

How I can help

Our health analytics approach leverages the increasing availability of data and our cutting-edge modelling approaches to put timely actionable data in the hands of key stakeholders.

Multimorbidity, living with two or more conditions is one of the biggest challenges facing patients and health systems today. We leverage real world datasets and innovative approaches to generate evidence that identifies patient groups with the greatest unmet needs in a more holistic manner that reflects the drivers of ill health.

The majority of health systems use activity-based payments providers but this does not ensure patient and population health is at the heart of all decisions. We work with payers and providers to design and implement innovative reimbursement solutions that realign incentives to deliver value to patients and the wider health system.

Our work across population health management (PHM) brings clarity to decision makers with the dual aim of improving the population’s health and reducing inequalities.

We integrate a wealth of health and health-related datasets and develop bespoke interactive visualisations to make it accessible and rapid for clients to glean insights across a range of areas.
