Lecturer in Pure Mathematics
Senior Researcher in Health Economics (NDPH)


MMath (Oxon), DPhil (Oxon)

Academic Background and Previous Positions

I came to Oxford in 2001, to undertake a degree in mathematics followed by a DPhil in the area of functional analysis. After that I worked as a statistician in the Infectious Diseases and Microbiology group of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine before moving to my current post at the Nuffield Department of Population Health. At various points of time I have also held teaching positions at Pembroke, St. Hilda’s, New and Jesus colleges and the Department of Continuing Education.

Undergraduate Teaching Areas

As a college lecturer, I give tutorials and intercollegiate classes in various areas of pure mathematics. I am also involved in teaching statistics and health economics modules for medical students, and until recently have been providing a range of LaTeX training courses.

Research Interests

My interests cover questions related to chronic diseases, for example chronic kidney and cardiovascular disease. Specifically I am interested in decision-analytic modelling, assessing long-term health outcomes and cost-effectiveness of interventions, as well as disease socioeconomics aspects.
