About Me

Senior Healthcare Scientist; Cedar, Healthcare Technology Research Centre

Rob started at Cedar in 2016 having previously completed a BSc and MSc in Physics, followed by a Ph.D. in Computer Science (Medical Image Analysis) from Swansea University. While at Cedar Rob has been a member of the HOPE Wales (Health Outcomes and Patient Experience) team which has been integrated into the national ViH Programme to provide analytical capacity & support. Rob has been an Honorary Research Fellow at Cardiff University’s School of Engineering since 2017 and is a co-supervisor of a number of health informatics trainees on the NSHCS Scientist Training Programme.

During his time at Cedar Rob has gained valuable experience working with and analysing data collected by the national Welsh PROMs and PREMs platform, as well as other PROMs data, registry data, and other related datasets. He has also contributed to validating both electronic and Welsh language PROMs by interviewing patients across the country. Rob has enjoyed producing and contributing to analysis reports and published manuscripts, as well as presenting at conferences. He believes it’s important that our conclusions, results, and methodologies are robust and transparent in order to maintain high standards and ultimately, improve services through value-based health care.
