The DRE Team
Dr Natassa Spiridou, DRE Design and Delivery Lead
Natassa joined GOSH in 2018 leading the development and deployment of the DRE research platform and other Trust-wide applications that support research, clinical audits, and operational projects. She sets the DRE strategy for further expansion of the data, platforms and applications including federated analytics that will enable more collaborations and advanced research in diagnosis, treatment, and care for children.
Natassa previously led projects at the Biomedical Research Centre at Kings College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust involving data linkage, setting-up a research platform and establishing informatics and governance for the use of primary care data in partnership between the university, commissioners and public health. She also has over 15 years’ experience in bioinformatics through roles at Cancer Research UK and Illumina delivering analysis packages, databases and visualisation tools.
Dr Will Bryant, DRE Data Scientist
Will has worked in the DRE team at GOSH since 2018 as a data scientist, consulting on all aspects of research in the Trust especially regarding data science, programming and maximising the use of research infrastructure. He has a particular focus on strategic and operational analytics and aspires to integrate reproducible analytics pipelines and open code into standard innovation practice in the NHS. Will has a background in computational biology and has a PhD in biochemical engineering.
Daniel Key, Senior Data Engineer
Daniel started at GOSH in 2020, working with the DRE team to create and nurture systems that bring good data to the right places. He has around 12 years’ experience in medical data, including leading the data function at a health start-up (33N) while they delivered a national programme (CLEAR) for NHS workforce/service redesign; and building the data collection and delivery systems for a long-term cohort study (SABRE) about ethnic disparities in cardiovascular outcomes at Imperial and UCL. He also brings experience from other sectors including includes financial services.
Dr Lydia Briggs, Data Scientist
Lydia joined GOSH in 2020 as a Data Scientist and is involved in the development of dashboarding and machine learning tools to help operational projects within the Trust. Additionally, she provides analytical and statistical support for clinicians and researchers using data provided by the DRE.
Lydia has a background in Medicinal and Biological Chemistry and previously worked in academia where her PhD specialised in crystallography refinements and synchrotron science in locating gaseous binding sites in porous materials for applications involving clean air technologies.
Sebin Sabu, Data Engineer
Sebin started at GOSH in 2022 as a Data Engineer. He is very interested on building decision support systems grounded on EHR data. Before joining GOSH, he worked as a part of a digital healthcare start-up based in India. He also have a multidisciplinary research background in Computational Cognitive Neuroscience, Lightning Physics, Data crowdsourcing and Smartphone Sensing.
Rosie Hamilton, Data Engineer
Rosie joined GOSH in 2020 as a Data Engineer and is involved with the improvement of research data management at GOSH. In particular, providing support to studies that use REDCap, a tool for electronic data capture in research, and the implementation of the FAIR data principles through the development of data standards.
Prior to GOSH, Rosie worked at The Health Foundation, assisting with applications for access to large administrative datasets, and exploratory data analysis of routinely collected primary care data. Rosie also has experience in clinical research, providing clinical trial and data management support to two large multicentre studies at the UCL Comprehensive Clinical Trials Unit.
Mo Shah, Data Engineer
Mo joined GOSH in 2020 as a Data Engineer. His main priority is to gather requirements from users of the DRE and make sure they get the data they need.
