Research

I am a research fellow at the Centre for Musculoskeletal Outcomes Research, in the Department of Surgical Sciences. My research focuses on health economics, specifically on valuation of health-related quality of life (HRQoL), economic evaluation of healthcare interventions, and simulation modelling of disease epidemiology and treatment to inform health care policy.
