Research Interests

My research focuses on the evaluation of medical tests, spanning a wide range of diseases and clinical settings. I am particularly interested in improving the methodology used to evaluate diagnostic and screening tests.


I recently joined the University of Warwick and I am a member of Warwick Evidence and Warwick Screening. I work on a large portfolio of applied test evaluation projects, including RCTs, analyses of routinely collected data, and economic modelling studies. I also undertake reviews and evidence synthesis on the clinical and cost-effectiveness of medical tests for the NIHR Evidence Synthesis Programme on behalf of a range of policy makers, including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
