Managing Director and Professor, Centre for Health Economics at Swansea University
Phil is a mathematician who gained his PhD at the School of Mathematics, Cardiff University for work related to modelling the AIDS epidemic. This involved the development of deterministic and stochastic compartmental simulation models for use with back projection methods for quantifying the incidence of HIV infection. Following this, he was employed as a research associate at the School investigating the use and validity of cardiovascular risk functions in type II diabetes.
For twelve years, Phil worked as Director and Senior Research Mathematician at Cardiff Research Consortium, primarily developing stochastic simulation models and multivariate statistical models for use in manufacturer reimbursement submissions. Phil’s technical expertise lies in simulation modelling and multivariate statistical data analysis, whilst his primary academic interest is efficient simulation methods and methods for the reduction of variance in simulation models.
Phil is currently Professor and Technical Director at the Centre for Health Economics, Swansea University and Managing Director of HEOR Ltd, working predominantly in the area of HIV, oncology, diabetes and infectious disease modelling.
