Below is a list of my first authored papers, followed by papers I co-authored. Clicking on one of my first authored papers will take you to another page that briefly summarises what the paper was about.
First authored papers
1. Parental perception of child obesity
I modelled child obesity cut-offs as derived from parental perceptions, which differed greately from cut-offs based on objective measures. This paper generated a large amount of media interest.
2. Modelling the effect of intensive treatment on longterm cardiovascular disease risk
Taking a trial of intensive treatment for diabetes, I predicted the difference in long-term outcomes using cardio-metobolic health at the last available follow up point.
3. Cardiovascular disease risk factors after diabetes diagnosis
I looked at how risk factors for cardiovascular disease change after diabetes diagnosis in a population with screen-detected diabetes, taking into account the heterogeneity present in this population.
4. Bariatric surgery in children
I completed a meta-analysis looking at the effectiveness of bariatric surgery in children and adolescents. This highlighted that despite an increasing number of surgeries being undertaken, we understand little about long term effects.
5. Recovery after injury
I completed an individual patient data level meta-analysis of EQ-5D assessed recovery after injury combining three thirds of the known study data globally.
