Martin Howell is a Research Fellow at the University of Sydney, School of Public Health. He has worked at the CKR for KHA-CARI guidelines since 2008. In 2016 he was awarded a PhD from the University of Sydney titled 'Kidney transplant patients’ preferences and priorities for outcomes after transplantation.'

Martin’s prime area of interest is in patient preferences, values and priorities and how these should be captured in research and patient care. Areas of expertise include development of clinical practice guidelines and health economics, in particular the use of econometric methods to elicit preferences and priorities. At CARI, Martin oversaw the introduction of the GRADE evidence evaluation framework. More recently he has worked with the SONG project team to introduce novel survey techniques to their international Delphi consensus surveys.
