Caroline joined UCL in June 2014 as a Research Associate in Health Economics and was promoted to Senior Research Fellow in 2018. Her home department is the Research Department of Primary Care and Population Health (PCPH), at the UCL Royal Free Campus in Hampstead Heath. Her main role is as a senior health economist in the HEART (Health Economics Analysis and Research methods Team), which is the group name for the health economists based in UCL’s Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology (ICTM), led by Prof Rachael Hunter. Caroline works across all four clinical trials units (CTUs) of ICTM (Priment, Comprehensive CTU, Cancer Research UK and UCL Cancer Trials Centre, and the MRC CTU at UCL), and beyond, with other groups in UCL and with external collaborators.

Caroline’s role mostly focuses on leading the design, planning, analysis and reporting of the health economic evaluation aspect of clinical trials and observational studies. She works on trials and programme grants funded by NIHR and other bodies across a wide variety of disease and therapy areas, specialising in complex interventions, primary care, mental health, and a number of different cancers, including work on service delivery and reconfiguration, and evaluation of new surgical and diagnostic methods. She also undertakes methodological research and supervises undergraduate dissertations and PhD students. She teaches introductory health economics on a number of Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes, and on HEART’s short course aimed at non health economists in trial teams, and is leading the Health Economics module on the new MSc Statistics in Clinical Trials. She is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, awarded via UCL Arena.

Before joining UCL, Caroline worked in the operations department of a small strategic intelligence and market research healthcare consultancy in London, leading the quality control and resource management functions, and before that she lived in Spain for a few years and worked as a translator of Spanish and Catalan into English. She holds an undergraduate BA and MSci in Natural Sciences (Chemistry) and a PhD in Chemistry (graduated 2006) from the University of Cambridge. She completed the Master’s in Economic Evaluation in Health Care at City, University of London, at the end of 2013, with distinction.
