Staff Profile

Dr Jaime Peters

Senior Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

My background is in medical statistics and I have worked in the area of evidence synthesis for over 10 years, particularly on issues of publication and reporting biases. In the last 4 years my interests have spread to decision modelling and health economics. My work with PenCLAHRC has involved the development of a number of economic analyses to inform decision-making locally for the South West Peninsula Health Technology Commissioning Group. Related to this work I co-supervise a PenCLAHRC-funded PhD student (Bogdan Grigore) who is exploring the use of formal elicitation techniques to obtain expert opinion for use in decision models. Continuing my interest in publication and reporting biases, I am also involved in a PenCLAHRC-funded project investigating the effectiveness of reporting guidelines for studies with non-randomised study designs.
