Mrs Mary-Kate Hannah
- Data Scientist (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)
I bring three decades of experience in population health research to my current role: supporting and collaborating with researchers within the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit and beyond.
I acquired extensive skills in data management, statistical analysis and communication while working on The West of Scotland Twenty-07 Sudy, the WHO Scottish MONICA Project (monitoring trends and determinants in cardiovascular disease), and the Scottish Heart Health Study and have published on topics including nutrition, physical activity, mental health and health behaviours.
My current responsibilities span both professional and research roles. I support colleagues across our Unit with Data Management Planning and Open Research practices. I am chair of our Unit Data Access Committee and a key member of our Research Support Group, working closely with our Population Health Research Facility. I collaborate with colleagues, within the Inequalities in Health Programme, across our Unit and in other institutions, who use the West of Scotland Twenty-07 Study data.
