I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Swansea Centre for Health Economics (SCHE), Swansea University. I started my academic career as a Lecturer in Statistics in 1995. I have about 20 years of experience in academic teaching and research in areas of statistics, demography, operational research and health economics. My research covers economic evaluation of healthcare programmes and health technology assessment, economic evaluations alongside RCTs, decision analytical modelling, application of OR tools in HE, and more recently have grown interests in modelling antibiotic resistance. I teach health economics and decisional modelling (graduate and post-graduate levels) on various courses at Cardiff and Swansea Universities and currently co-supervise three PhD projects. I have degrees in Statistics (MSc), Health Economics and Health policy (MSc) and Operational Research (PhD). Externally, I have been acting as a health economist on the New Medicine Group (NMG) to provide evidence from appraisals of new drugs to All Wales Medicine Strategy Group (AWMSG). I was on the editorial board of the AIUB Journal of Business and Economics (AJBE) during 2010-2014. I am a reviewer for NIHR HTA and Public Health Programme, European Journal of Public Health, Value in Health, PLOS ONE, BMC Public Health, BMC Health Services Research, Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory.
