Justin C Yang

I’m a psychiatric epidemiologist in the Division of Psychiatry at UCL. I’m also the research database manager at Camden & Islington NHS Foundation Trust and an honorary lecturer in the Wolfson Institute of Population Health at QMUL.

I analyse electronic health records using epidemiological, causal inference, and machine learning methods to better understand patients accessing secondary mental health services, their care, and their health outcomes. I’m broadly interested in applying administrative and routinely collected data to understand and ameliorate health disparities, including those based on ethnicity, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. To date, my work has focused on substance use disorders, severe mental disorders, and personality disorders.
