Chris is a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Post-doctoral Fellow based at the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research, Director of Health Assessment and Innovation at The Psychometrics Centre, University of Cambridge, and Research Associate at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.
His current work focuses on both assessing the impact of interventions which seek to improve processes and outcomes of care using patient-reported assessment measures and more fundamental research to ensure that assessments have the greatest potential for patient benefit. This latter involves the application of computer adaptive testing, tailored feedback, and machine learning algorithms to improve the accuracy, feasibility, and effectiveness of patient-reported assessments to improve clinical research, audit, and care.
At The Psychometrics Centre, Chris manages projects and training courses related to modern psychometrics, big data, and data visualisation. Chris is responsible for developing Concerto as a tool to create and deploy patient-reported assessments across health services worldwide.
