I joined ScHARR in 2014 as a Health Economist Research Associate for HEDS, working in collaboration with the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for Yorkshire and Humber (CLAHRC YH). As of January 2017, I have been promoted to the position of Research Fellow. As of July 2018, I am the current Director of the MSc Health Economics and Decision Modelling (HEDM) course.
I completed my BA in Economics and MSc in Economics and Health Economics at the University of Sheffield in 2007 and 2008, respectively. I then moved to the University of Nottingham in 2008, working as a Health Economist Research Associate, as well as starting my PhD in Health Economics in 2010. I completed and passed my Viva for my PhD thesis, titled "The role of utility, health, and capabilities in economic evaluation: a case study in frail older people", as of December 2014.
During my time as a health economist I have provided health economic support for at least five completed Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs), as well as a number of cohort, pilot and feasibility studies. Although I specialise in the use of routinely collected healthcare data and outcome measures for the purpose of economic evaluations alongside clinical trials, I also have an interest in: (1) the psychometric assessment and statistical analysis of health, well-being and capability-based measures; and (2) the use of routinely collected healthcare resource-use information from large observational datasets or directly from the health or social care service for the purpose of economic analyses, developing economic models, and costing exercises.
1. Use of routinely collected healthcare data for trial-based economic analyses and economic modelling
2. Trial-based economic evaluation and outcome measurement
3. Cost-effectiveness analysis and Markov modelling methodology
4. The capability approach to outcomes measurement and valuation
5. Pathway-based economic modelling
