Key Research Interests and Expertise
My major interest is efficient research design, specifically using Value of Information analysis to predict the return on investment in alternative clinical trial designs. I also have expertise in decision analytic modelling and economic evaluation alongside clinical trials.
I lead the Health Economics module on the UEA MSc in Health Economics and year 1 SSS in Health Economics on the UEA MBBS course. I also provide additional lectures for other modules.
