Personal profile


Research Interests

My main research interest relates to how to incorporate and quantify the impact of imperfect implementation, uptake, and wider service delivery issues (such as information provision) of interventions into economic evaluations. I am particularly interested in implementation issues in cancer screening, precision medicine and genomics. I have recently been awarded a Wellcome Trust early career award for a project titled "Providing Economic Evidence to Inform and Improve the Implementation of Cancer Screening Programmes". This work will build on my PhD thesis which explored how capacity constraints could be incorporated into economic evaluations of examples of precision medicine in breast and non-small cell lung cancer. In my fellowship I will explore how implementation barriers more broadly, and uptake estimated using discrete choice experiments, can be incorporated into economic models.


My other work in the area of precision medicine has included an early economic evaluation of a point of care test for CYP2C19 loss of function alleles to guide prescription of clopidogrel in patients who have experienced a stroke.

In addition to my work on precision medicine, I also have an interest in the application and methods of discrete choice experiments. My work in this area has included work to elicit preferences of: members for the public for information provided alongside newborn bloodspot screening programmes; colorectal and prostate cancer survivors for healthy lifestyle and dietary advice; and patients for a hypothetical biologic calculator to guide prescribing in psoriasis.
