Dr Catherine Stewart

  • Research Associate (MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit)


Catherine is a research associate within the Inequalities: Measurement and Analysis of Socio-economic Inequalities in Health (MASH) programme. Her current work aims to improve the use of linked data by considering and reducing bias introduced during the data linkage process.

Catherine graduated in 2005 with a BSc (Hons) in Statistics from the University of Glasgow. She joined the unit's Measuring Health programme in the same year to undertake a 4-year studentship, completing the Master of Public Health course at the University of Glasgow in 2006. Her doctoral research focused on developing multilevel event history models for large datasets. Following her PhD she worked as an Investigator Scientist within the same programme examining the association between air pollution, deprivation and mortality in Scotland. Catherine completed a 4-year MRC Career Development Fellowship in August 2015 where she was investigating the patterning of health outcomes of young adults by education through novel linkage of education, morbidity and mortality records for all publicly-funded school leavers in Scotland. This work remains an important focus of Catherine’s current post.

Catherine also tutors Statistics on the MSc Advanced Practice in Health Care course and is a former lecturer of Statistics 1Z in the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
