I returned to ScHARR in January 2010 after spending three years working on NICE Clinical Guidelines. I started in November 2006 as Senior Health Economist at the National Collaborating Centre for Nursing and Supportive Care which developed Clinical Guidelines for NICE. When this centre was merged with three others to form the National Clinical Guideline Centre (NCGC) in April 2009, I joined the NCGC as Health Economics Lead.

Prior to this period, I was a cost-effectiveness modeller within the HEDS section at ScHARR where I worked on NICE Technology Appraisals, NICE Clinical Guidelines, Health Technology Assessments and consultancy projects for the pharmaceutical industry.

I am currently Deputy Director of the NICE Decision Support Unit (DSU). The DSU is commissioned by The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to provide a research and training resource to support the Institute's Technology Appraisal Programme.

Research interests

My research interests are cost-effectiveness modelling, technology appraisal, and clinical guideline development.
