Profile

I am a PhD candidate in health economic evaluation at the University of Oslo, and I joined ScHARR as a visiting researcher in 2020. My PhD project is focused on dealing with uncertainty and immature trial evidence in the economic evaluation of health care technologies. I have a part-time position as health economist at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, where I work with technology appraisals to inform national reimbursement decisions for new and existing medicines.

Research interests

My research interests focus on the use of mathematical and statistical modelling for health economic evaluation, with a particular emphasis on uncertainty quantification. My current work involves the use of value of information methods and survival analysis in health economic decision models, to support decision making about early access to new health technologies based on limited evidence.
