Biography

Denise is a Statistician/Epidemiologist within the Inequalities in Health programme. She obtained her BSc (Hons) and Ph.D. in Statistics from the Department of Statistics at the University of Glasgow.

She has recently been involved in a CSO-funded project on population mobility and health inequalities and also in updating Carstairs deprivation scores for 2011. She is currently looking at inequalities in mortality in Scotland and the health of care experienced children in Scotland.

Research interests

Health inequalities, all-cause mortality, cause-specific mortality, area-based deprivation, Carstairs scores, population mobility, large datasets, linked data, care-experienced children and young people, population health
