Sarah Rodgers is Professor of Health Informatics at University of Liverpool and co-Investigator with PHIRST LiLaC. Sarah is a health data scientist with methodological expertise in evaluating complex public health interventions and policy changes using large routinely collected administrative datasets. She is particularly interested in working with local governments to harness data collected in sectors not usually thought to impact health, to inform local and national disease prevention strategies to reduce health inequity.
Her research focuses on using safe haven data that have been linked across health, social and environmental domains to explore the impact of exposures such as decent housing conditions, alcohol outlets, pollution, and natural outdoor spaces, on health and wellbeing. Since 2018 Sarah has also led the Care and Health Informatics theme of the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration for the North West Coast and is capacity building lead for LiLaC as part of NIHR School for Public Health Research.
