I joined ScHARR in 2005 after completing a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Sheffield and an MSc in Operational Research from Lancaster University. Since joining ScHARR, I have undertaken modelling projects for NICE, the Department of Health, the NHS Cancer Screening Programme and the pharmaceutical industry. A large part of this work has been around Public Health interventions and cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. In 2010 - 2013 I developed a framework for helping modellers develop the structure of Public Health economic models as part of a NIHR doctoral research fellowship.

I am currently undertaking a NIHR Advanced Fellowship, exploring methods for incorporating behaviour into health economic models of Public Health interventions.

I contribute to PhD and Masters programmes in ScHARR including being one of the Directors of the Wellcome Doctoral Training Centre in Public Health Economics and Decision Science (https://pheds-dtc.ac.uk/) and module lead of Advanced Simulation Methods (https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/scharr/modules/har672-advanced-simulation-methods)
