Senior Researcher in Health Economics
I am a Senior Researcher in Health Economics and I earned a Ph.D. and a M.A. in Economics from Simon Fraser University. I have experience of managing a range of applied economics and health economic studies, including policy evaluation, applied health economic evaluations, preference elicitation studies, and analyses of cross-sectional, trial, and cohort data using econometric techniques. I produced research and published in leading health economics, health services research journals and clinical journals. I have recently published as a first author research studies in Quality of Life Research, PharmacoEconomics, Food Policy, and Autism Research.
My studies have directly advanced health care delivery areas related to neurodevelopmental outcomes, oncology, and mental health and I am currently conducting a funded research to study the impact of preterm birth on health-related quality of life outcomes in adulthood. I have recently developed a work-stream to study the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on health-related quality of life in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disability. Currently, I am implementing a study to measure the impact of miscarriage on mental health outcomes across primary and secondary care settings. I conduct collaborative research with NDORMS, the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences.
I am happy to supervise prospective DPhil students, especially those interested in methodological issues related to health economics research, outcome research, policy evaluation, applied econometrics and machine learning.
