I am Director of PenCHORD, a team of researchers within PenARC which has been effective in developing a range of applied models of healthcare collaborating directly with health organisations to improve services in the South West.
My main interest is the effective implementation of modelling, simulation and analytic solutions to inform health policy and the evaluation of its impact. A particular focus is the communication of information and visualisation techniques to facilitate understanding across organisational and cultural boundaries.
In 2004 I helped establish MASHnet which aims to promote closer co-operation between professionals in health, research and commercial communities to improve the application of healthcare modelling.
My early academic background is in psychology,cognitive science and human-computer interaction. I completed my doctorate at the Medical Informatics Group at Manchester University developing an interactive multimedia system for use by healthcare consultants.
In 1998 I joined Exeter University as a lecturer in media computing before joining PenTAG in 2003 where I helped develop a range of economic models in the context of health technology assessment.
