Research interests

Lindsay is a Research Associate within HEHTA. She has a first class BSc (Hons) degree in Statistics (2005) and a PhD in Statistics (2009) from the University of Glasgow, and has been awarded Graduate Statistician status from the Royal Statistical Society.
In 2012, Lindsay was awarded a Medical Research Council Population Health Science Research Fellowship to investigate lifetime costs of diabetes and the impact of potential new interventions for the management of diabetes. Statistical and health economic models will be used to identify the benefits and costs of different treatments in diabetes management and to estimate the impact of prioritising different groups in terms of health inequalities.  Application of the models will be used to guide policy, clinical guidance and decision making, evaluate interventions, and define research areas.  This research involves the use of large population datasets through record linkage of national datasets in Scotland.
Additionally, Lindsay has experience of systematic review and meta-analyses of aggregate and individual patient data, and direct, indirect and networked evidence.  She has undertaken work in several areas of health research including stroke, hepatitis, cryptorchidism, cancer and obesity.
