Personal profile

Research interests

Emma has expertise in primary care-based randomised controlled trials, population-based cohort studies, utilisation of imaging particularly DXA for research purposes, and automated image analysis. She works across specialties and has ongoing academic collaborations with orthopaedic surgeons, computer engineers, qualitative researchers, statisticians and health economists. Her programme of work on vertebral fractures involves production and evaluation of a clinical tool (Vfrac) to screen older women with back pain for vertebral fractures. The outputs of this programme of work are likely to have a major benefit in reducing fracture risk within the older population, and will change clinical practice in the UK and possibly elsewhere. Emma is regularly invited to speak nationally and internationally, and has been appointed to various national bodies including the Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board of the Royal Osteoporosis Society, the Musculoskeletal Research Advisory Group for Versus Arthritis, and NIHR Health Technology Assessment Programme research panels. She examines for higher degrees internally and externally. She is an active Associate Editor for one international journal (Journal of Bone and Mineral Research Plus), and for Rheumatology (highest ranking journal in the field).
