Sungwook Kim


Researcher in Health Economics

I hold a PhD in health economics from UCL. I previously worked as an intern at the WHO’s European Office, studying harm reduction interventions and as an e-consultant at the World Bank focussing on the OPTIMA project. More recently, I worked at the Warwick Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Warwick where I developed experience in health economic evaluations conducted alongside randomised controlled trials and decision models, and methodological research around social deprivation, social equity and health policy evaluation. I joined the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences in March 2020 where I focus on a programme of economic modelling on vaccination and immunisation evaluation, and emergency response, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Warwick.
