I completed my MSc in Health Economics at City University, London. My dissertation was on cost-effectiveness of heptavalent conjugate pneumococcal vaccine (Prevenar) in Germany: considering a high-risk population and herd immunity effects. Prior joining the UCL Department for Applied Health Research (DAHR) I was employed by University of Oxford, National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (NPEU). I was involved in perinatal research and in particular, economic evaluations alongside clinical trials using primary data and using observational data for decision analytic modelling. I am currently involved in a multinational trial assessing the cost-effectiveness of a treatment policy of referral for carotid stenting compared with referral for carotid surgery (ICSS), funded by the MRC, Sanofi -Synthélabo, European Union.
