I lead a research team whose current research focuses on developing quantitative methods for the evaluation of health care programmes. Our expertise is in the design and analysis of observational studies as well as RCTs, and in methods for cost-effectiveness analyses. We are developing methods that address common methodological issues such as confounding due to treatment selection; non-compliance, missing data,  and external validity.

We undertake applied health economic evaluations predominately in the areas of adult and paediatric intensive care, emergency medicine, emergency and elective surgery, and to the evaluation of new health policies.

My current research interests are focused around methods for using large-scale observational data to provide estimates of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness that can relate directly to individual patients. This research programme includes NIHR funded studies evaluating emergency surgery and treatment intensification for patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

I am the co-director of the LSHTM centre for statistical methodology and sit on the NIHR commissioning board.

Research

My main research interests are in developing analytical methods for cost-effectiveness analyses, in particular those that use non-randomised study designs. My current work aims to develop more appropriate analytical methods for dealing with confounding due to treatment selection, missing data and issues raised by moves towards personalised medicine.

I have received methodological grants from the ESRC on methods for reducing selection bias in health economic evaluation, and from the MRC for developing analytical methods for economic evaluations that use data from cluster randomised trials.

I have ongoing interests in applying the techniques of economic evaluation across a diverse range of clinical areas including adult and paediatric intensive care, hepatitis C, mental health, and for emergency and elective surgical procedures. 

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the general area of statistical methods and health economic evaluation.
