Health Economist



I am a health economist at the Health Economics and Policy Research Unit (HEPRU), Centre for Evaluation and Methods (CEM). I am also affiliated with the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU) at CEM.

Prior to joining QMUL, I was a postdoctoral fellow in health economics at the Centre for Innovative Drug Development and Therapeutic Trials for Africa (CDT-Africa) where I worked on MRC funded project on understanding the burden, patterns of and risk factors for multimorbidities in low- and middle-income countries and a Wellcome Trust/NIHR funded project on enhancing research uptake and evidence-to-policy translation in health.

In addition to research, I have previous experience in delivering courses in economics and health economics and programme management in higher education contexts.


Research Interests:

My research interest broadly falls in the areas of outcome assessment, economic evaluation and health technology assessment, health policy evaluation, evidence synthesis and translation, access to health care and health care financing.
