I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Economics (CHE), University of York, UK. I joined CHE in 2006 after completing the MSc in Health Economics at York. I hold a MSc in Mathematics (2001), PhD in Theoretical Physics (2004), and MPhil in Medical Statistics (2005), all awarded by Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland.
My research interests are centred on the development and application of decision analytic modelling methods and Bayesian approaches to Health Technology Assessment. I have led an extensive number of Health Technology Appraisals for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK and I now currently lead this programme of work at CHE.
I have a specific interest in Uncertainty analysis and Value of Information methods for informing both research prioritization and health technology reimbursement decisions. I lead this area of research at CHE. I am currently co-chairing the ISPOR Task Force on Emerging Good Practices for Value of Information analysis.
