Health economic aspects of childhood excess weight
Drawing from the literature and a novel primary care database called QResearch, part of my DPhil project will focus on developing a framework for estimating bodyweight and health economic outcomes over varying time horizons, given individual baseline conditions in childhood.
My DPhil research is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) Oxford and Thames Valley and my supervisors are Professor Stavros Petrou, Professor Julia Hippisley-Cox, Professor Susan Jebb and Dr Mara Violato.
My previous research roles at Brunel University London and the University of Southampton involved evaluating the cost-effectiveness of health technologies for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and other policy makers.
