Inaugural Professorial Lecture - Professor Paul Hansen

Paul has had the privilege of spending most of his life at Otago studying and teaching Economics, which he loves. These days, most of Paul’s research is focused on health economics and multiple Criteria decision-making, with emphasis on priority-setting and resource allocation, especially via his software, 1000minds, which he invented with Franz Ombler.

The 1000minds website

Together with Julian Moller and other colleagues, they provide 1000minds to New Zealand and international users – including businesses, governments, charities, researchers and students at more than 200 universities worldwide. During his 30-year Otago career Paul has also been a contractor for Google, an advisor to the World Health Organization, been seconded to the Treasury and consulted for PHARMAC, Housing New Zealand and the Ministry of Health. In 2009-10 he served on the Medicines Review Panel, which contributed to a major expansion of PHARMAC’s roles.

Refreshments will be available at Staff Club after the lecture.
