Epidemiology, causality & Mendelian randomization

I am a clinical epidemiologist who focuses on methods for improving causal inference in studies of disease etiology and disease prevention. I pioneered the use of germline genetic variants for investigating modifiable causes of disease ('Mendelian randomization') and developed several extensions of the basic method. Throughout my career I have promoted increasing the accessibility of data, and implemented this in studies I led, including ALSPAC.
