Dr Uy Hoang
I am a research fellow working within the Clinical Informatics & Health Outcomes Research Group (www.clininf.eu) in the Section of Clinical Medicine Ageing. My role within the group is to provide epidemiological support and a public health overview to the work on chronic and infectious diseases.
Alongside specialist medical training in public health at the Oxford Deanery, I also have a doctorate in clinical epidemiology from the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College and a Masters in Public Health from Yale University.
My research interests lie around the use of large, routinely collected datasets to study the occurrence and management of chronic physical and mental illness.
To this end, I have collaborated extensively with Professor Michael Goldacre, from the Unit of HealthCare Epidemiology at the University of Oxford, a leading expert in health record linkage; as well as Professor Gyles Glover, from the University of Durham and Professor Rob Stewart, from the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, experts in the use of electronic medical records in mental health services research.
I have taught mental health epidemiology on the MPH programmes at Imperial College and King’s College London and have experience supervising undergraduate and graduate students studying public health.
