Biography

I worked as an accountant for 20 years before studying on the HTA MSc run by HEHTA at the University of Glasgow.  During the summer break of the MSc I worked at the Health Economics Group at Newcastle University on a lung transplantation clinical trial. After completing the MSc in 2015 I began working for HEHTA as a Research Assistant working mainly on economic evaluation alongside clinical trials. Clinical trials I have worked on while at HEHTA include interventions for adults with intellectual disabilities and depression, treatment to reduce COPD exacerbations, lung cancer screening and financial incentives for encouraging smoking cessation in pregnant women.

I am currently writing up my PhD which looks at a new role for conceptual models in economic evaluation.

I am co-chair of an older worker Athena Swan group and very proud to be part of this initiative.
