+44(0)113 343 0858

Summary: I lead the Cancer Epidemiology Group and my research is centred on the epidemiology of colorectal cancer and its management. I also lead the wider Section of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

Location: Worsley Building

Teaching Commitments: I contribute to the research components of the MBChB undergraduate medical programme and supervise postgraduate students.


I lead large-scale population-based studies that are quantifying variation in the processes of management and outcome of cancer patients. These studies are generating the evidence needed to inform NHS cancer services. In particular, I lead CORECT-R, a £3.4m Cancer Research UK programme that is establishing a UK wide colorectal cancer data repository. CORECT-R will bring together all of the datasets that are relevant to colorectal cancer and securely link them to produce the high-quality cancer intelligence needed to improve outcomes. I am also a Co-Investigator on the £1.5m Yorkshire Cancer Research Bowel Cancer Improvement Programme led by Prof Phil Quirke.
