Geoff is a senior Research Fellow working in Southampton Health Technology Assessments Centre (SHTAC) based within the School of Healthcare Enterprise and Innovation.
He coordinates teams of systematic reviewers and health economists producing critical Evidence Review Reports for the National Institute for Health and Care Excelence (NICE) Technology Appraisals Programme. These appraisals cover a wide range of conditions including (among others) cancers; liver, heart, eye and skin disorders; type 2 diabetes; asthma; bloodstream infections; sexually transmitted infections; obesity; and rare metabolic disorders.
Geoff has an interest in improving the methods of evidence synthesis and is actively involved in developing and updating guidelines and standards for the conduct of systematic reviews, meta-analyses, systematic maps and rapid reviews.
