I am Chair of Public Health at the University of Warwick and I hold the position of Director of the Warwick Centre for Applied Health Research and Delivery (W-CAHRD).
I have published over 250 original research papers and my research interests include the methodology of clinical trials, patient safety and Service Delivery Research. I also have a long-standing interest in the application of Bayesian statistics to medical and health-related research.
I direct the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) for the West Midlands and hold many other NIHR, charity, Research Council and EU grants. I also hold a NIHR Senior Investigator Award.
My clinical trials interest has particularly focused on the integration of new treatments and services into the health service, including psychological interventions, the clinical effects of information technology, and different methods of organising services, surgical procedures and treatment policies. This work focuses on integrating outstanding clinical research into the health service.
My expertise in clinical research means I am heavily involved in cost effectiveness and decision analytic modelling in the health service.
