Projects per year
I am a Chancellor's Fellow at the Department of Management Science. My research is interdisciplinary and focuses on modelling to improve decision-making in healthcare policy, utilizing tools and methodologies from mathematical epidemiology, economics, and computer science, among other areas.
My main body of work integrates disease and economic models for policy impact evaluation, and I have developed infectious and non-communicable disease models, including a pneumococcal disease model for the Global Antibiotic Resistance Partnership (GARP) and agent-based models (ABMs) integrating population, healthcare, economic, and disease dynamics for the Disease Control Priorities (DPC-3) project. In addition to continuing my work on the economics of healthcare interventions in low- and middle-income countries, I have done work on valuation of antibiotics for DRIVE-AB, an Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) funded project investigating mechanisms to encourage research and development of new antibiotics and to promote their global access and sustainable use. My other research interests include using game-theoretic models to study the impact of behaviour by individuals and actors facing healthcare decisions.
I am also affiliated with the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics, and Policy in Washington, DC, where I am a Fellow. I have a PhD in Management Science, focusing on modelling for healthcare policy, from the University of Strathclyde and an MA in economics and BA honours economics from McGill University, in Montreal.
