As Director of Research, I’m responsible for developing the organisation’s research agenda and ensuring that the team produces outstanding policy research. We’ve set up quite a unique internal quality assurance process and external peer-review system for our research papers, which you can read more about here. Our reports have been used sources in peer-reviewed academic papers or by Select Committees and government departments.
Since joining Reform in 2015, I’ve been involved with a wide variety of research projects ranging from assessing current issues with ways of measuring of public sector productivity to developing a model for prison performance assessment . My work now focuses on how tech innovations can help public services deliver better outcomes for people. I am particularly interested in the public-sector applications of artificial intelligence (AI). I lead and co-authored papers on data sharing in the public sector, AI in the NHS, the value of healthcare data and commercial models within healthcare system and the regulation of data-driven technology in healthcare (in collaboration with NHSX).
I am a member of the British Standard Institution’s Committee on AI standards and a member of the AI Programme advisory board for the Academic Health Science Network and the London Hub Lead for One HealthTech (a volunteer-led network that seeks to promote diversity in healthtech).
