Current and recent research


A focus of Adam’s work is the use of observational data and applied econometric techniques.

Within the healthcare setting, Adam currently contributes to various innovative projects which involve analysis of linked individual-level data from primary and secondary care records:

  • - LP Maestro (project funded by NIHR) which aims to evaluate the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of particular configurations of liaison psychiatry services in hospitals
  • - Comprehensive Patient Records (CPR) for cancer outcomes (project funded by Macmillan Cancer Research) which aims to assess the impact of cancer, co-morbidities and late-effects on individuals and the health service


Since many factors which affect health are outside of the healthcare setting, Adam also takes a particular interest in research of the social determinants of health. Current projects include:

  • - Commuting and wellbeing (funded by ESRC Secondary Data Analysis Initiative) which aims to examine the relationship between commuting (to work) and wellbeing using panel data from the ‘Understanding Society’ survey
  • - Other recent research in this area was as part of the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR), a collaboration between the University of East Anglia (UEA) and University of Cambridge
