I am a health economic modeller in ScHARR, working on long-term cost-effectiveness modelling in a number of disease areas including Type I Diabetes and radiology. I joined HEDS in June 2011, after completing a BSc from the Pennsylvania State University, and an MSc and a PhD from University of York. My PhD thesis was on multidimensional well-being and the effect of relative wealth on self-reported and mental health in developing countries.
My research interests are:
- Cost-effectiveness modelling
- Multidimensional and subjective well-being
- Discrete event simulation
- Healthcare modelling
- Applied microeconomics
- Economic Evaluation
- Health Care Finance and Economic Evaluation in Public Health
I am currently working on the following projects:
- Modelling generic type-1 diabetes model to estimate the cost-effectiveness of NIHR Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC)
- Improving management of Type 1 diabetes in the UK: the DAFNE programme as a research test-bed
- A multi-centre, cluster randomised controlled trial comparing structured education (the KICk-OFF course) with standard care in 11-16 year olds with Type 1 Diabetes (T1DM) on intensive insulin therapy.
- Cost-effectiveness of DXA scans in children with low bone mineral density
- Cost Modelling of the Haemato-Oncology Diagnostic Services Provision in Sheffield Hospitals
