I joined ScHARR as a researcher in 2009. Prior to joining ScHARR, I undertook an undergraduate MA in Economics at the University of Aberdeen. This was followed by a 4 year MRC HSRC Studentship to undertake a Masters in Economics and Health Economics followed by a PhD at the University of Sheffield.   

Research interests

My research interests are:

  • Development and testing of preference-based measures including health and well-being
  • Mapping between condition-specific and generic preference-based measures of health

Teaching interests

My teaching interests are:

  • Measuring and valuing health
  • Economic evaluation

I am interested in supervising research students in topics related to development of preference-based measures, well-being and application of economic evaluation methods in developing countries. 

Professional activities

  • Health Economics Study Group
  • ScHARR Research Ethics Review Committee

Current projects

I am currently working on an MRC and Euroqol group funded study developing a new preference-based measure that goes beyond the health QALY. I am also involved in an EEPRU study to derive weights for different aspects of health care delivery.
