Senior Researcher in Health Economics
My research interests relate to the economic challenges and opportunities for health and healthcare that are associated with the increased availability of genetic data. I am also a Junior Research Fellow in Social Sciences in the Centre for Personalised Medicine at St Anne’s College.
I hold degrees in Economics from Trinity College Dublin (BA) and Nuffield College, Oxford (MPhil and DPhil), and in Health Economics from the University of York (MSc). I hold a diploma in Financial Management awarded by the ACCA.
Before joining the Department, I held a personal MRC Skills Development Fellowship at the Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol. This programme of work used Mendelian Randomization to study the causal effect of traits, behaviours and health conditions on healthcare costs and on quality of life. I also worked for a number of years as an economic consultant in the private sector, advising regulators, governments and large corporates on the economic issues that arise in the regulation of network industries.
