Senior Researcher & Managing Editor, University of Oxford

I am the Managing Editor of the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group based in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford. In this role I author systematic reviews of interventions to help people to quit smoking, and helps others to write their systematic reviews. I have been conducting research into tobacco and smoking for over ten years and received my doctorate in 2012. I am passionate about maximising the quality of research evidence, and providing people with the best evidence to make informed decisions about their healthcare.

My work is supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) through the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group's Infrastructure grant. The views expressed are mine and not necessarily those of the NHS, the NIHR or the Department of Health and Social Care.
