I gained my Mathematics degree from the University of Manchester in 1985 and my MSc in Operational Research from Strathclyde in 1986. For 10 years following the MSc I worked in Operational Research consultancy, giving practical decision support right across the health sector from hospitals to Department, in addition to the mining, banking and education sectors.
I joined ScHARR in 1996 to focus on healthcare decision support. From 2002 to 2008 I was the Technical Director of ScHARR Technology Assessment Group responsible for the scientific quality of the group's work for the NICE Technology Appraisals Programme.
I am a founding member and Technical Director of the Public Health Collaborating Centre at ScHARR.
