Reader



I graduated in medicine from the University of Birmingham, subsequently specialised in ophthalmology. In 2002, following an MSc in epidemiology and statistics from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, I moved to an academic post in the Health Services Research Unit, University of Aberdeen and subsequently to the Univeristy of St Andrews.

Research Overview from research@st-andrews

I graduated in medicine from the University of Birmingham and subsequently specialised in ophthalmology and applied clinical research.  I lead  a portfolio of clinical research into effective and efficient models for eye care, using a variety of methods including qualitative, evidence synthesis, economic modelling, and clinical trials.
