Overview

My career has taken me from new medicine R&D through to organization of healthcare services. I currently focus on application of clinical pathway simulation and machine learning.

Anexample project may be found here: https://samuel-book.github.io/samuel-1/introduction/intro.html

Qualifications

Ph.D. (University of Manchester), B.Sc. (Pharmacology, University of Bath)

Research

Research interests

Example recent papers:

Research projects

Many of projects have fast turn around (3-4 months) in order to fit with the rapid changing healthcare environments. At this time the projects Michael is involved with include:

• Organization and capacity of neonatal care in the South West
• Orthopedic surgery waiting times
• Organization of mental health services
• Primary care: models of patient access

Grants/Funding

NIHR - The right cot, at the right time, at the right place. Use of Neonatal Survey(data and computer simulation technology to improve design and organisation of neonatal care networks (http://www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/projects/hsdr/10101148).
