Key Research Interests

My expertise is predominantly in conducting economic evaluations alongside clinical trials, which I have applied to a variety of disease areas, mostly in public health, mental illness, and care for the elderly.  I work closely with the Norwich Clinical Trials Unit and also with collaborators at University of Cambridge, University of Hertsfordshire and CLAHRC East of England.
