May Ee Png
Researcher in Health Economics
I joined Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences as a Researcher in Health Economics in February 2020. I've previously worked at Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS), University of Oxford from 2018 to 2020. My research interests are health technology assessment, including but not limited to economic evaluations within clinical trials, and electronic health record analytics.
I completed a BEng in Biomedical Engineering and a PhD in Public Health specialising in Health Economics at the National University of Singapore. During my PhD, I examined the economic implications of type 2 diabetes in Singapore and contributed to the 'War on Diabetes' initiated by the Ministry of Health of Singapore in 2016.
Before my PhD, I worked as a hospital executive and research coordinator at the Singapore General Hospital. Here I worked with both the clinical and operations teams, learning hospital operation and administration, and interacting with and collecting research data from patients and their caregivers.
I'm currently involved in VALENTIA, a study which aims to enhance knowledge about the methodology for valuing benefits and harms within economic assessments of antenatal and newborn screening programmes.
