My research interests include applied health economic evaluations alongside randomised controlled trials, particularly for non-pharmacological interventions for long-term conditions. I am also interested in more methodological aspects of economic evaluation, and have developed a research programme in costing methodology. I have also recently led a Delphi survey to identify the key content of a health economics analysis plan (HEAP) to create guidance for practitioners.


I completed a PhD in Chemistry in 1994, and then spent a number of years working in various roles in the academic publishing sector.  Following a growing interest in medical research, I undertook an MSc in Health Economics and Health Policy at the University of Birmingham, and started working for the University of Bristol as a Research Assistant in Health Economics in May 2010.
