Biography

Ian graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2004, and subsequently undertook an MSc, and PhD (in genetic epidemiology) at King’s College London, whilst completing his training in general medicine and rheumatology. He was appointed as a Consultant Rheumatologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer, at the Haywood Hospital, and Keele University in 2016.

Research and scholarship

Ian’s research focus is around improving the health of people living with inflammatory arthritis, with a particular emphasis on improving pain, alongside electronic healthcare record studies and digital epidemiology. He was awarded a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Advanced Research Fellowship in 2020 to deliver a programme of research in this area.

He has expertise in systematic reviews, epidemiology, statistics, and observational studies. He has over 45 peer-reviewed publications, and has been awarded over £1.4 million in competitive, peer-reviewed funding for personal research fellowships and grants as lead applicant.

Teaching

Ian teaches throughout the undergraduate medical curriculum, on the MSc Rheumatology Nursing course at Keele, and the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust STARS (Supporting The Advancement of Research Skills) course. He also contributes to West Midlands regional rheumatology specialist registrar study days.
