Profile

I am undertaking a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) doctoral research fellowship studying carer health-related quality of life and its inclusion in economic evaluations. My fellowship focusses on analysing change in carer health-related quality of life using longitudinal data and exploring how this can be incorporated into cost-effectiveness models. The project builds on my previous research as part of the Decision Support Unit for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) reviewing the inclusion of carer health-related quality of life in NICE appraisals (Pennington, 2020).

I joined ScHARR in 2017 as a member of the Decision Support Unit, where I worked as a health economic modeller on appraisal-specific and methodological research projects. Prior to this I worked as a Technical Adviser at NICE in public health and social care guidelines, and as a Principal Health Economist in consultancy developing economic models and submissions for health technology assessment. Whilst working in consultancy I completed my MSc in Health Economics and Decision Modelling at The University of Sheffield. I have a BSc in Mathematics from The University of Sheffield.

I am a member of NICE’s Technology Appraisal Committee A.
