Conducting economic evaluation of primary care interventions, with a focus on diagnostics.
I joined the department in 2015 as a health economist working within the field of primary care.
My research involves using both decision analytic modelling and trial-based evaluation methods to assess the cost-effectiveness of primary care diagnostic, prognostic and monitoring interventions. I have a particular interest in assessing the impact of diagnostic strategies on health outcomes that are not readily captured in current cost-effectiveness methods, for example, weighing the relationship between antibiotic prescribing and antimicrobial resistance, or considering how to value outcomes in pregnancy.
I have also have an interest in quality of life research, and am a collaborator on the HERC Database of Mapping Studies.
I teach health economics on a number of modules as part of the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care.
I have a Masters in Health Economics from the University of York.
