I joined the International Centre for Evidence in Disability in October 2020, to work with Professor Tom Shakespeare to contribute to the evidence briefs for the disability evidence portal.

Recently, I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Economics and Health Policy from the University of Birmingham. I started my career in public health research upon completion of an MSc in Evidence Based Social Intervention from the University of Oxford in 2007. My first project was with Dr Phil Edwards to update his highly cited Cochrane systematic review on methods to increase response rate to postal & electronic questionnaire. I have now contributed to over 15 evidence syntheses, two methodological trials, and a qualitative study.

I am also a registered Physiotherapist. I undertook my Physiotherapy training at Father Muller's Medical College, affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, India. I briefly worked as a Community Physiotherapist with the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.

My interests lies in evidence-based practice and policy including knowledge translation research to determine what works and in what contexts. Additionally, I am interested in evidence synthesis of economic evaluations, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of health technologies, policy simulation modelling (e.g. microsimulation, system dynamic modelling) for prevention and management of long-term conditions such as cardiovascular disease, falls, and mental health.

Teaching

I am a distance learning tutor for the core module - Reporting and reviewing of clinical trials, part of the MSc Clinical Trials programme.

Research

I contribute to the evidence briefs for the disability evidence portal. The briefs aim to answer research questions on what knowledge exists about best practices for people with disabilities in low-and middle- income countries? Research questions are organised in to themes based on the WHO's community-based rehabilitation matrix. The themes include: Health; Education; Stigma; Livelihood & Social Protection; COVID-19; and Cross-cutting.
