Biography

I joined ScHARR as a researcher in 2009. My current work includes economic evaluation and outcomes research including health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measures and well-being. Prior to joining ScHARR, I undertook an undergraduate MA in Economics at the University of Aberdeen. This was followed by a 4 year MRC HSRC Studentship to undertake a Masters in Economics and Health Economics followed by a PhD at the University of Sheffield.  I explored the relationship between preference-based measures of HRQoL such as the EQ-5D and subjective well-being measures.  

Research interests

My research interests are:

  • Assessing the use of well-being as an outcome measure for economic evaluation
  • Development and testing of preference-based health measures in different populations
  • Mapping between condition-specific and generic preference-based measures of health

Teaching interests

My teaching interests are:

  • Health economics
  • Economics of well-being

I currently teach on the Masters of Public Health

I am interested in supervising research students in topics related to development of preference-based measures, well-being and application of economic evaluation methods in developing countries.
