As a student and employee of the University of Liverpool, he has experience of conducting quantitative and qualitative research projects. Originally employed by the Liverpool Public Health Observatory, Nigel has been a researcher at the University of Liverpool since November 1994.

Aside from research, he has provided methodological advice to postgraduate students and supervised students undertaking the MPH.
