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.
My research interests are:
- Methods for measuring uncertainty in economic evaluations
- Methods for developing preference-based measures from existing QOL measures
- Economic evaluations alongside clinical trials
- Censored costs
My teaching interests lie in statistical issues in Economic Evaluations, Medical Statistics and Evidence Synthesis and Methods for Developing Preference-Based Measures.
I am module coordinator for the Economic Evaluation module on the HEDM and E&HE MSc's.
