Biography

I joined HEDS in January 2014 as an assistant modeller, following a 13 year career in biomedical research. I completed a BSc in Genetics in 1999 and followed this with a PhD in 2003, both from the University of Sheffield, before working at the University of Nice, France and the department of Biomedical Science at the University of Sheffield. I am currently studying part-time for the HEDM MSc run by ScHARR.

I have worked on a series of public health-related modelling projects; in particular the School for Public Health Research (SPRH) diabetes model, which is a policy model designed to evaluate a wide range of type-2 diabetes prevention interventions. In addition to public health, my research interests include combining my modelling expertise with my genetics/biomedical science background to model the cost-effectiveness of genetic screening programmes, genomics and novel biologic treatments.
