Matt joined HERG in 2010 following the completion of an MSc in Health Economics at the University of York. He was previously awarded a BA (Hons) in Economics from the University of Durham. His work is predominantly in the areas of economic evaluation alongside clinical trials and long-term economic modelling. He also has research interests in methods for estimating the return on investment (ROI) from medical research. In 2017, he became an Honorary Research Fellow following a move to a London based helath economics consultancy, but retains research and teaching links with Brunel. He lectures on the HERG short course and MSc in Genomic Medicine.
He has been involved in several clinical trial study teams as part of collaborations with the research and development department at Papworth NHS Trust and the Biostatistics Unit at the University of Cambridge (TOMADO, ASTER, AMAZE, and Ministern) as well as with the University of Warwick (SARAH). Matt has paricular research interests in the evaluation of abdominal aortic aneurysm screening programmes and decision modelling in this context, most recently as Co-investigator on an NIHR HTA grant (Screening Women for Aneurysms [SWAN]). He has also provided input to the external assessment of industry submissions for NICE, as part of their medical technologies evaluation
Matt is currently involved in an ongoing study applying novel methods to estimate the ROI from musculoskeletal research, as well as investigating the relationship between private and public funded research and how international flows of knowledge occur.
