Conor Macdonald

Postdoctoral researcher

About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in epidemiology and causal inference. I am interested in causal inference methodology, and its application to registry and observational cohort data in order to provide clear and actionable information for use in prevention and clinical practice.

I have previous experience in cohort epidemiology, having conducted a first postdoc in Paris, using data from the E3N cohort study.


  • PhD in Medical Science - University of Dundee 2015 - 2019 My PhD thesis aimed to identify novel tools to provide risk-stratification for patients receiving arterio-venous fistula surgery prior to commencing haemodialysis. I explored various modalities including MRI and ultrasound imaging, and registry based data including laboratory measurements.
