Year of entry: 2018

I’ve worked part-time for the regional NHS Healthcare Public Health team since the beginning of the pandemic, initially contributing to COVID-19 modelling and later pivoting towards data analytics projects on elective recovery, mental health and primary care. Before joining the doctoral programme, I worked as Knowledge Transfer Associate at Surrey County Council informing local bus planning, and helped University College London Hospitals as Research Associate to develop a ward performance measurement scheme. As part of his academic training, I have designed and delivered various lectures to EMBA and mini-MBA students at an equivalent of one module.

Research interests

Tom’s current projects seek to identify operations management solutions to reduce healthcare inequities (with NHS East of England) and try to understand what is a good size for a primary care practice to be operationally efficient (with the Health Foundation). To answer these topical questions, Tom applies causal statistical methods to routinely collected patient-level data.
