I joined ScHARR in 2005 after completing a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Sheffield and an MSc in Operational Research from Lancaster University. Since joining ScHARR, I have undertaken modelling projects for NICE, the Department of Health, the NHS Cancer Screening Programme and the pharmaceutical industry. A large part of this work has been around Public Health interventions and cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. In 2010 - 2013 I developed a framework for helping modellers develop the structure of Public Health economic models as part of a NIHR doctoral research fellowship.
•Modelling within public health
•Individual-level simulation to model healthcare systems
My teaching interests are:
•Mathematical modelling within healthcare
•Discrete event simulation
•Editorial Board of Journal of Simulation
I am currently working on the following projects:
•The clinical and cost-effectiveness of pertuzumab for the neoadjuvant treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer (NICE STA)
•The clinical and cost-effectiveness of adalimumab, dexamethasone and sirolimus for treating non-infectious uveitis (NICE MTA)
