Profile

I joined ScHARR in April 2004 and work as a health economist in HEDS. My work in ScHARR has included developing methodology for deriving condition-specific preference based measures from existing quality of life instruments. I am also involved in a number of economic evaluations alongside clinical trials.

Research interests
  • Methods for measuring uncertainty in economic evaluations
  • Methods for developing preference-based measures from existing QOL measures
  • Economic evaluations alongside clinical trials
  • Censored costs
  • Mapping
