Personal profile


I have strong research interests in the transparency and reproducibility of decision-analytic models used in health economic research. As such, I am pursuing a part-time PhD, exploring the value of replication in health economic decision models. As a part of this, I have received research funding from CLAHRC East of England to evaluate the reproducibility of decision models through a systematic review and replication study, published in Value in Health.

Primary supervisor: Prof Tracey Sach, Secondary supervisors: Dr Nick Levell and Mr David Turner.

Alongside this I am working full time as a Research Fellow in Health Economics at The University of Manchester, evaluating the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.
