Applied healthcare studies; Healthcare modelling and simulation; Mixed methods research
My role within the PenCHORD team is to apply operational research methods to help with the understanding and improvement of healthcare service provision. Another aspect of my role is to understand how we can evaluate the relationship between the healthcare professional and the researcher to enhance the successful implementation of research outputs. The emerging area of behavioural OR is of particular interest to me. Having joined the PenCHORD team in November 2014 with a background in psychology and applied healthcare research, I look forward to exploring the boundary between healthcare systems and human behaviour in the future.
