Title of Research
Quantitatively estimating uptake and its impact on economic evaluation of health technologies
I began my PhD studies at ScHARR in October 2011 and have since studied the phenomena of uptake and diffusion of health technologies and their impact on economic evaluation.
My PhD is funded by the Policy Research Unit in Economic Evaluation of Health and Care Interventions (EEPRU).
Before starting the PhD, I graduated from City University London with an MSc in Health Economics in October 2011. I was also working as a research assistant at City University and looked at the impact of pharmaceutical regulation on innovative productivity and social welfare.
My professional experience includes 3 years of work as a project manager for a distributor of health technologies to Asian countries (Singapore, Philippines) and a placement with the benefit risk assessment team at Novartis (Switzerland).
My research interests lie in uptake and diffusion of health technologies, how implementation of cost-effective health technologies can be improved and the impact of uptake levels on cost-effectiveness. I’m also interested in modelling methods and elicitation of expert opinions as well as welfare analysis, R&D and pricing in the health sector.
I am currently teaching Statistics in the Economics department at the University of Sheffield
