Research Groups
Research Summary

My main research interests are in the development, assessment and translation of statistical methodology in health economics. I have recently completed a MRC Early Career Fellowship on developing appropriate methods for addressing missing data in health economic evaluation, particularly, when data are hierarchical, non-randomised and missing not at random. 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. Other interests include economic evaluations alongside clinical trials and large observational studies, with particular emphasis in cardiovascular diseases, cancer and mental health.


I would be interested in supervising PhD students in the following areas:

- Health economic evaluations using either clinical trials or observational data.

- health econometric evaluation of health interventions

- statistical/econometric methods for handling confounding and/or missing data in health economics

- identification and estimation of causal effects for health and health services research using electronic health records and administrative data

- evaluation of health interventions for the management of long-term/chronic conditions
