Annemarie graduated from Bristol University in 2003 and trained in the South West, London and Wessex before moving to Edinburgh in 2009. She undertook a Masters in Public Health (MPH) 2013-14, and a PhD (2014-2017) examining optimal care practices for patients who are admitted to ICU with pre-existing cardiovascular disease. She was an ECAT SCREDS Clinical Lecturer until she finished her joint training in Intensive Care Medicine and Anaesthesia.
Annemarie leads ICU-HEART (Intensive care Cardiovascular disease Use of HEAlthcare Routine data to inform Trial design). This programme of work aims to improve outcomes for critically ill patients with co-existing cardiovascular disease. She will use routine national healthcare data in Scotland and England to identify and characterise critically ill patients with co-existing cardiovascular disease. Using machine learning techniques, she will explore different healthcare phenotypes, and identify groups of patients who may benefit from an intervention to improve myocardial oxygen-supply demand imbalance. She will study adaptive trial design methodology, looking at the use of continuous "vital signs" monitoring as an intermediate outcome.
