Alicia is working as an assistant professor in cardiovascular epidemiology, associated with the BigData@Heart consortium of the Innovative Medicines Initiative. Main fields of interest: heart failure, electronic health records, real-world data, phenotyping.

In 2016 Alicia Uijl started her PhD project on Opportunities and Challenges of Real-world Data in Heart Failure at the Julius Center for Primary Care and Health Sciences, University Medical Center Utrecht. She was under supervision of prof. dr. F.W. Asselbergs, prof. dr. A.W. Hoes, dr. S. Koudstaal and dr. I. Vaartjes. She spent a research period abroad from September 2016 – September 2017, where she worked at the Institute for Health Informatics at University College London with CALIBER and CPRD data, United Kingdom, under supervision of dr. R.H.H. Groenwold and prof. Spiros Denaxas. She spent a second research period abroad, at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, where she worked from September 2018 – June 2019. Here she studied the Swedish Heart Failure registry, working together with dr. Gianluigi Savarese and prof. dr. Lars Lund. During her PhD trajectory she obtained a second Master's degree, the online post-graduate Master’s degree in Clinical Epidemiology, in 2019. In June 2020 she succesfully defended her PhD.
