I am the Lead Data Scientist for the Somerset Integrated Care System with a remit to introduce Data Science and conduct Operational Research. I have a particular interest in non-elective care including patient flow, major trauma, emergency departments, critical care, and prehospital care (999).
In my PenCHORD role I am researching into whether Discrete Event Simulation and Causal Impact Analysis can be combined to better identify meaningful change in a complex healthcare system. Alongside this work I help to facilitate research between PenCHORD and Somerset ICS. For the past two years I have been a mentor on the Health Service Modelling Associates (HSMA 4,5) scheme, helping to train the next generation of Data Scientists in Healthcare.
