Research Summary

My research career centres on improving policy and practice decisions through the development, application and evaluation of approaches to evidence synthesis that combine economics and systematic review methods. This includes developing and evaluating methods, tools and procedures for: improving the efficiency of review and evidence synthesis production workflows; incorporating evidence from previously published economic analyses into reviews; identifying, appraising and synthesising evidence for de novo economic analyses (e.g. decision modelling); and integrating complexity perspectives into the synthesis of evidence for the costs and effects of interventionsI am therefore increasingly interested in how we can optimise systems, methods and workflows for efficient, semi-automated creation, curation, synthesis and use of research data at scale, to inform decision-making about health and welfare. I am an active member of the international research synthesis community, including as a Cochrane Member and Co-convener of the Campbell and Cochrane Economics Methods Group.
