Profile

I joined HEDS as a health economist in September 2006. Prior to joining HEDS I worked as a teaching assistant in Economics at the University of Sheffield whilst undertaking a PhD in Economics.

Research interests
  • Measuring and valuing health and quality of life
  • Modelling preference data
  • Methodology of developing preference-based measures of health from existing measures
  • Mapping between measures to generate utility values
  • Measuring and valuing child health

Since joining ScHARR I have worked on a variety of projects including an MRC-NIHR Methodology Programme project on developing and testing methods for deriving condition-specific measures of health from existing condition-specific measures to estimate QALYs. I have also undertaken NICE DSU technical support documents for estimating utilities focussing on mapping and alternative measures to EQ-5D. I have also estimated societal values for burden of illness and end of life as part of EEPRU.

Current projects

I am currently working on a project to elicit preferences around the aspects of quality of mental healthcare from mental healthcare service users, mental healthcare professionals and members of the general population.

  • Milad Karimi
Teaching interests

My teaching interests lie in health economics, in particular QALYs, utilities and outcome measurement.

I am interested in supervising research students in topics/areas related to measuring and valuing health, in particular deriving, estimating and using utility data for health technology assessment.
