I joined ScHARR as a researcher in 2009. My current work includes economic evaluation and outcomes research including health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measures and well-being. 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. I explored the relationship between preference-based measures of HRQoL such as the EQ-5D and subjective well-being measures.
My research interests are:
- Assessing the use of well-being as an outcome measure for economic evaluation
- Development and testing of preference-based health measures in different populations
- Mapping between condition-specific and generic preference-based measures of health
My teaching interests are:
- Health economics
- Economics of well-being
I currently teach on the Masters of Public Health
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.
