I joined the Health Economics and Decision Science at the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) from a financial background. Having spent 9 years within the NHS at purchaser and provider level, I worked in an analytical and modelling capacity within industry for two years before joining SCHARR.
My academic achievements include a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Sheffield.
I am currently the economic lead for a study comparing ultrasound with biopsy for diagnosing Giant Cell Arteritis (TABUL study) and for a screening study aimed at identifying individuals with learning disabilities at high risk of cardiovascular disease and reducing sedentary behaviour.
I have a particular interest in modelling the effect of policies and treatments for the long-term management of Type 2 diabetes and its complications. Specific projects completed include the Cost Effectiveness of Screening for Type 2 Diabetes using an HbA1c versus a Fasting Plasma Glucose test (NCCHTA), the Cost Effectiveness of Lifestyle Interventions for the prevention of Type 2 diabetes (NCCHTA), and economic assessment of a DPP-IV inhibitor, the economic impact of hypoglycaemia, and the cost effectiveness of the DESMOND intervention. Within the last 2 years, I have completed 2 economic assessments for NICE Public Health guidance on Prevention of type 2 diabetes.
Other experience includes economic evaluation of drugs to treat acute coronary syndromes, and development of a model for Barnsley PCT aimed at predicting the benefit of public health measures to reduce hospital admissions resulting from cardiovascular and renal disease.
- Effectiveness and Cost-effectiveness of interventions to prevent and manage type 2 diabetes
- Economic modelling of cardiovascular diseases
- Data analytics methods to identify or stratify individuals at high risk of having a condition or developing the condition in the future
I am in involved in supervision and marking of dissertations for the MSc in Health Economic and Decision Modelling.
I have been a reviewer for several journals articles and grant applications. I was also one of 50 delegates invited to a Diabetes-UK "Frontiers In Diabetes" conference on Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes in 2008 and was invited to contribute towards a background paper on the prevention of Type 2 diabetes for the 2010 Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh Consensus conference on diabetes.
I am a co-applicant on several grant applications in the field of type 2 diabetes including research around education, screening and prevention.
