Research interests:

  • Determinants of health and well-being,
  • Valuation of health outcomes (Development and testing of preference-based measures),
  • Mapping between measures of health outcomes (e.g., between condition-specific and generic preference-based measures of health),
  • Economic evaluation (Cost effectiveness analysis).

Teaching interests:

  • Quantitative methods,
  • Measuring and valuing health, and
  • Economic evaluation.

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