I joined ScHARR (HEDS) as a Research Fellow (modelling) in October 2018 after two-year post-doctoral fellowship in the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (2016-2018). Prior to this I was employed by the Erasmus University Rotterdam, School of Health Policy and Management, were earlier (2015) I defended my PhD.

My path to science was long, and I have a seven-year experience in pharmaceutical business organizations. Starting from Manager in Pharmacoeconomics and growing to the Head of the Market Access Department, I was employed by such global companies as Janssen-Cilag, Merck, and Sanofi.

Research interests

• Implementation research (assessment of national programs);
• Global research, in particular for low- and middle-income countries;
• Cancer prevention and early detection (breast, colorectal cancers);
• Preferences of population and their consideration in cost-effectiveness models;
• Methods for assessment and synthesis of published economic evidence

Current projects

• I currently work on a microsimulation model for colorectal cancer
