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 have also worked on a number of economic evaluations.
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 interested in supervising Research Students in topics/areas such as methodological issues in economic evaluations and methodology for developing preference-based patient reported outcome measures.
My teaching interests are:
- Deputy Director of HEDS Teaching Fuctional Working Group
- Health Economics
- QALYs, Utilities and outcome measures
