Senior Health Economist

Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Science

I am a Senior Health Economist based at the Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU), Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS).
My main responsibility is to lead the health economics work packages across musculoskeletal, rheumatology, rehabilitation, trauma and surgical interventions. My work is largely cross-disciplinary, as I work closely with orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, GPs, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists as well as statisticians, qualitative researchers and patient representatives. I also teach in the MSc Musculoskeletal Diseases programme and run workshops in NDORMS.

My research interests relate to applied economic evaluation of health care interventions alongside clinical trials and beyond.
