I joined ScHARR in 2000 having previously worked at the University of Leicester and was awarded a Personal Chair in 2012. I am Director of the NICE Decision Support Unit, Co-Director of the Policy Research Unit in Economic Methods of Evaluation in Health & Care Interventions and a member of the Research Design Service for Yorkshire and the Humber. I have Masters and PhD degrees in Economics and recently completed a Masters in Probability and Statistics at the University of Sheffield.
- Economic evaluation including alongside clinical trials and decision modelling
- Analysis of patient level data, particularly around health utilities
- Social values and decision making, including equity and procedural preferences
I lead the "Health Economics" module for the MSc Health Economics and Decision Modelling and teach on various other modules of the same course.
I am interested in supervising research students in a broad range of topics around economic evaluation, but particularly in relation to statistical methods and decision modelling.
