I am a PhD student at ScHARR, supervised by Professor Aki Tsuchiya, and Dr. John Holmes. My work is primarily focused on inequalities in health, and, in particular, the way in which inequalities are captured within economic evaluation in health.
I am a member of the ScHARR Wellcome Trust Doctoral Training Centre in Public Health, Economics and Decision Analysis. Prior to joining Sheffield, I spent six years working as a Health Economist within the pharmaceutical industry. I hold an MSc in Behavioural Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science, an MSc in Health Economics from the University of York, and a BSc in Economics from the University of York.
My primary research interests are:
- Equity/efficiency trade-offs in economic evaluation
- The valuation of subjective well-being
- The role of emotion in choice experiments
