Area of Study / Keywords

health economics economic evaluation health technology assessment health policy policy evaluation health economics methodology


My research is focused on the application of economics principles to the understanding and evaluation of healthcare policy and interventions.

I undertake applied projects with a range of partners from academic, not-for-profit and government organizations. My specific focus is on evaluations of interventions in palliative care or for people nearing the end of life. I also undertake evaluations across other clinical settings, with previous studies in maternal health, mental health and well-being, orthopedics and aging and frailty.

My methodological interests include the incorporation of equity concerns within economic evaluations and the use of routinely collected data for post-implementation evaluation of technologies.
