Current Research Interests

My programme of research focuses on health services research and health care quality improvement for acutely ill patients. My research aims to directly improve the quality of care for patients before, during and after an episode of critical illness through rigorously conducted research and engagement with key stakeholders. I have a particular research interest in epidemiological methods and using linked 'big' data.
