Dr Grace Dibben

  • Research Assistant (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)

Biography

Dr Grace Dibben joined the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in September 2020 as a research assistant, working within the complexity in health programme. She is a statistician for the cardiac rehabilitation Cochrane review centre

Grace holds a BSc in Mathematics and Sport and Exercise Sciences and an MSc in Cardiovascular Rehabilitation from the University of Chester, and a PhD in Medical Studies from the University of Exeter. In her PhD research she investigated the effect of cardiac rehabilitation on physical activity levels of patients with heart failure, and developed improved methods to estimate physical activity intensity using accelerometers in heart failure patients. 

She is experienced in quantitative research methods, using accelerometry to measure physical activity, cardiac rehabilitation and systematic reviews.
