I am a methodologist with expertise in the design and conduct of RCTs, systematic reviews, and qualitative and mixed methods research across a range of populations. I also have a track record in service development, implementation science and quality improvement.

I am a current member of the NIHR HTA Clinical Evaluation and Trials award committee. I lecture on trial methodology on HAR6116 (for which I am module lead) and HAR 674, and practical aspects of research project management on HAR6051. I currently supervise five PhD students.
