Ms Kate Homer, MSc, Bsc


Senior Health Data Scientist



In 2009 I joined the QMUL Centre for Primary Care from NICE as a researcher on the 5 year NIHR grant 'Coping with persistent Pain, Evaluation Research in Self-management (COPERS)' lead by Professor Steph Taylor. I then joined the Clinical Effectiveness Group (CEG) to continue research on primary care records in Tower Hamlets, City and Hackney and Newham. Projects included linking primary and secondary care records to explore multimorbidity as a predictor of A&E attendance.


Re-joining QMUL in June 2021 as a health data scientist at CEG my role includes data extraction from a large primary care record database covering 7 areas in North East London to support the REAL-HEALTH programme. I also contribute to statistical analyses relevant to population health management and support initiatives around data linkage of health data with local authority data.


Between 2018 and 2021 I worked as a public health analyst at the London Borough of Hackney. This included data support for the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment covering services for substance misuse, children and young people, mental health and smoking. I also supported the Coronavirus response analysing and visualising data on Covid-19 cases, tests, deaths and vaccinations by geography and by inequalities.
