Biography

Within the Informing Healthy Public Policy programme I focus on evidence synthesis methods and public health policy evaluation. I am working on Cochrane reviews that evaluate the taxation of sugar-sweetened beverages and sugar-added foods. I also research the application of GRADE methodology in public health. I am a methods editor for Cochrane Public Health.

Prior to joining SPHSU, I worked as a programme manager in the National Health Service for ten years, where my projects included national clinical guidelines, the national cancer quality indicator programme, and healthcare standards.

In 2016-17 I was a European Respiratory Society Fellow in Guidelines Methodology based at the Iberoamerican Cochrane Centre, Barcelona, and at NICE in Manchester.

Research interests

Research Interests: health policy evaluation, natural experiments, systematic review methods, sugar-sweetened beverage taxation, cancer prevention, CVD prevention, breast cancer (prevention, risk prediction, screening), fifth wave public health, healthcare improvement.

Expertise:  Systematic reviews, non-randomised studies, natural experiments, regression discontinuity, guideline development, GRADE, healthcare quality standards and indicators, qualitative methods.
