I joined ScHARR in 2005 after completing a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Sheffield and an MSc in Operational Research from Lancaster University. Since joining ScHARR, I have undertaken modelling projects for NICE, the Department of Health, the NHS Cancer Screening Programme and the pharmaceutical industry. A large part of this work has been around cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. I have also undertaken several cost-effectiveness analyses of public health interventions.
- Healthcare modelling
- Discrete event simulation to model healthcare systems
- Modelling within public health
- Methods for handling structural uncertainty
My teaching interests are:
- Mathematical modelling within healthcare
- Discrete event simulation
- Editorial Board of Journal of Simulation
- Member of the General Council and Events Committee of the Operational Research Society
I am currently working on the following projects:
- NIHR Fellowship: A methodological framework for developing the structure of public health economic models
- Pilgrim H, Chilcott J. Assessment of a 7-day turn-around for the reporting of cervical smear results using discrete event simulation. Journal of the Operational Research Society 2008; 59:902-10.
