I am Director of PenCHORD a team of researchers within PenCLAHRC which has been effective in developing a range of applied models of healthcare collaborating directly with health organisations to improve services in the south-west. My main interest is the effective implementation of modelling, simulation and analytic solutions to inform health policy and the evaluation of its impact. A particular focus is the communication of information and visualisation techniques to facilitate understanding across organisational and cultural boundaries. In 2004 I helped establish MASHnet which aims to promote closer co-operation between professionals in health, research and commercial communities to improve the application of healthcare modelling. My early academic background is in psychology,cognitive science and human-computer interaction. I completed my doctorate at the Medical Informatics Group at Manchester University developing an interactive multimedia system for use by healthcare consultants. In 1998 I joined Exeter University as a lecturer in media computing before joining PenTAG in 2003 where I helped develop a range of economic models in the context of health technology assessment.
