Myles is a behavioural scientist interested in applied mixed-methods healthcare research. A key part of his research focuses on evaluating the impact of mental healthcare (service re-design, suicide prevention, art therapy and support for homeless adults). Myles is currently the Principal Investigator for an Economic and Social Research Council funded Knowledge Exchange project with a mental health charity (Second Step).

His work contributes to the Efficiency theme within the National Institute for Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (NIHR CLAHRC-West). This involves work alongside clinical trials, psychometric analyses, applied research with Clinical Commissioning Groups and qualitative health economics.

Before joining CLAHRC-West Myles completed a PhD at the University of Exeter Medical School (Health Economics Group) investigating the multidimensionality of well-being using economic methods (fixed effects analyses and discrete choice experiments). Prior to this he undertook psychological research (University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre) and worked in the third sector within a mental health charity.
