Emily Boucher

BHSc. (Hon.)

DPhil Student

Emily Boucher is a DPhil student in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences funded by a Rhodes Scholarship. She studies the epidemiology of cognitive and physical frailty in hospitals using large sets of routine data, in particular ORCHARD-EPR. Most emergency hospital admissions are for older people, so data on the prevalence and impacts of these conditions are important for informing policy, health services and guidelines. 


Emily is also a medical student at the University of Calgary (on leave to complete her DPhil), where she previously earned a Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) degree as one of two Leader in Health Sciences Scholars. During her BHSc, she did an Honours project on the host immune response to infection. She has also done policy research on vaccines for the National Institute on Ageing in Canada.
