My first degree was in psychology, and I hold a PhD from Trinity College Dublin on quality of life assessment with older people. I joined the Health Services Research Unit at LSHTM in 1998 and worked there till 2008. While at LSHTM I helped develop the Clinical Effectiveness Unit at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and the NICE acute care guidelines programme.

I am now a Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College Cork and an Honorary Professor at LSHTM. I continue to collaborate with the LSHTM Outcomes Group led by Dr Sarah Smith.

Research

I am the Director of the National Health Services Research Institute in Ireland.

I am currently exploring the value of PROMs as a tool for engineering quality improvement in a variety of clinical areas including breast cancer surgery and joint replacement.

I am also the Principal Investigator on the 'SIREN' programme. http://www.ucc.ie/en/siren/. This is a large scale evaluation of the reconfiguration of urgent and emergency care services in Ireland, using methods developed by collaborators at the University of Sheffield.
