Staff Profile

Kerry Pearn

Associate Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCLAHRC in September 2014 to work within PenCHORD as an Operational Researcher. My key role is to apply mathematical optimisation techniques to improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare systems. I am currently investigating how different configurations of hospitals within the South West region, which offer Emergency and Urgent Care, have an impact on the regions patients. Prior to joining PenCLAHRC, I gained a Mathematics and Sports Science BSc degree from Birmingham University and pursued my enjoyment of Operational Research at Silsoe Research Institute and Cranfield University, applying mathematical modelling techniques to optimise agricultural systems.
