I have previously been a Visiting Scholar at the Centre for Health Economics, University of York, and at the Department of Health Care Policy, Harvard University.

Research Groups
Research Summary

My main research interests are in the development, assessment and translation of statistical methodology in health economics. Supported by a MRC Early Career Fellowship, my post-doctoral research focused on developing appropriate methods for addressing missing data in health economic evaluation, particularly, when data are hierarchical, non-randomised and missing not at random. Beyond missing data methodology, my current interests includes statistical approaches for handling time-varying confounding for estimating treatment effects in health economic studies that use observational data, in particular, routinely collected data. My interests in applied research include economic evaluations alongside clinical trials and large observational studies, with particular emphasis on digital and mental health.
