Qualifications: BSc (Biochemistry), MSc (Information Science)
Teresa has developed a particular interest in bibliometric techniques and research evaluation. Her work has predominantly formed part of the methodological development theme within the “Analysis of ‘Payback’ from Research” project.
She initially took up a NHS Research Fellowship at HERG to examine the outputs from research with some element of NHS funding.
She has spent much of her time working on a project funded by the MRC Methodology Programme investigating the categorisation of citations across many generations of citing papers to trace the wider impacts of research. This involved the development of a new methodology which was applied to research in the area of psychiatry and neuroscience.
In addition she was part of the team examining the available evidence on engagement of research and improved performance in healthcare organisations.
Teresa was part of the team examining the wider impacts of research funded by the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) in Australia. This work involved the use of the ‘Payback Framework’ that had been previously developed at HERG and has been widely used internationally to evaluate the wider impacts of research.
Other research projects that Teresa has been part of include the HTA funded systematic review examining the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of drug treatments for neuropathic pain associated with post-herpetic neuralgia and diabetic neuropathy.
At present Teresa is part of the large multinational team involved in the EQUIPT project that is being led by HERG. Teresa is also a member of the See-Impact team focusing on stakeholder engagement in promoting the impact of research through a prospective analysis of the EQUIPT project.
