I am a health economist who works primarily in economic evaluation of service provision.  I have worked extensively in acute stroke evaluating care pathways and treatments.

I lead the North East and North Cumbria Applied Research Collaboration's Linked Data and Digital Health sub-theme and am interested in the uses of linked data in evaluation as well as the role of digital technologies in improving health.  These interests link back to my career prior to health economics where I work as an economist developing software for risk management in international capital markets for ten years.

I am also particularly interested in transformation and change in healthcare provision:   

  • The processes through which innovation occurs and what facilitates these
  • The ecosystems that enable transformation and technical change.
  • How an innovative healthcare ecosystem can deliver wider benefits to regional economies
