Evaluating cost-effectiveness in pregnancy

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 interventions. My DPhil aims to assess how outcomes in pregnancy can be captured consistently in cost-utility analysis, using a mix of qualitative and quantitative research methods.

I 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.
