Staff Profile

Justin Matthews

Associate Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCHORD in 2013 to work with Mike Allen and Martin Pitt on a project involving the local care network for premature babies (Peninsula Neonatal Network). This includes statistical and modelling analyses intended to improve the design and organisation of the network. For example, the work should help identify the numbers of cots and nurses required to meet the guidelines for care set out by the British Association of Perinatal Medicine.
