I am currently conducting doctoral research into the diagnosis of dementia in primary care, and specifically how the use of brief cognitive assessments (the 'pen and paper' tests) can be improved in practice. My main interest is in evaluating medical tests and investigating how tests are used in the diagnosis and prognosis of a condition or state.
I am lead author of one Cochrane review of diagnostic test accuracy, and have conducted a large number of non-Cochrane reviews and evidence syntheses and have produced a series of commissioned public health reports for the Centre of Public Health Excellence at NICE on topics covering unintentional injuries in childhood, obesity prevention and smoking cessation. I have exptensive experience in systematic reviewing (including specifically for diagnostic test accuracy), survey methods and using theory-led approaches such as realist synthesis.
