Activities / Findings

I'm a health economist with an interest in the evaluation of complex interventions including, in particular, the specific challenges of evaluations in child health. I provide methodological support to the Bristol Trials Centre and the Research Design Service in Economic Evaluation. Previously I was the lead health economist on a stream of work on burns and scalds as part of The Scar Free Foundation and Centre for Children's Burns Research.

While my more recent work experience is in trial-based Economic Evaluations (including frequently complex interventions with multi-sectoral costs and conseqeuences), my PhD (Birmingham, UK) involved evidence synthesis of test accuracy statistics and service delivery modelling. Prior to this I did a Masters in Economics (Edinburgh) (dissertation: game and decision theoretic approaches applied to human rights agreements) and an undergraduate honours degree in Economics and English Literature (St Andrews).

I'm also an associate researcher in Residence for the Research and Evidence team at BNSSG and have an interest in local priority setting, knowledge mobilisation and implementation. I set-up the Commissioner-friendly Health Economics steering group with a view to improving the dialogue and knowledge exchange between academic health economists and local decision-makers.

I am interested in PhD supervision in topics relating to information overload of digital/wearable technologies in health care and Child health.
