I am employed as an Associate Director in the Science Policy and Research Programme team at the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. My research interests include the measurement and valuation of health-related quality of life, empirical ethics, and the use of social value judgements in health care decision making.

I was appointed Honorary Research Fellow at ScHARR in November 2017, shortly after completing my PhD (under the supervision of Professors Aki Tsuchiya and Allan Wailoo). My PhD research examined the extent of public support for a policy of giving higher priority to life-extending end of life treatments than to other types of treatments.
