I am a lecturer in applied health statistics based in the Centre for Implementation Science in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London. I am also embedded as a staff member in the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. The remit of my hybrid faculty appointment (researcher-in-residence) is to offer statistical leadership, initiative, and support for quality improvement (QI). A core focus has been developing measurement and evaluation practice in healthcare improvement initiatives led by frontline NHS staff. The longer-term goal is to hone the implementation science of QI and build a foundation for a learning healthcare system.

I have an academic background in psychology and sociology and obtained a PhD in health service and population research. Using advanced techniques in item response theory and structural equation modelling, I seek to understand and mitigate the inherent impact of measurement issues on statistical analyses that investigate theoretical mechanisms, empirical profiles, and/or change over time.
