Dr Mark Perry

Senior Research Fellow


Mark first trained as a primary school teacher, and then a physiotherapist, and has been very happily involved in research and teaching since 2000. His most recent job was as a research methods and statistics lecturer in Singapore, and prior to that was working as a systematic reviewer at the National Clinical Guideline Centre, doing NICE guideline reviews.

His work at the AUECR involves overseeing systematic reviewing in the centre, providing general support, training and advice.
