I joined the Academic Unit of Health Economics in June 2023 as a senior research fellow. Prior to this, I worked as a senior technical analyst at the Centre for Guidelines within the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) where I conducted economic evaluations for a number of clinical and public health guidelines.
