Dr Manuel Gomes BSc MSc PhD

Lecturer in Health Economics and MRC Early Career Fellow in Economics of Health

Background

After graduating with a first degree in Economics, I completed a MSc in Economics at the University of Porto, a MSc in Health Economics at the University of York, and a PhD in Health Economics at the LSHTM. My PhD thesis considered alternative statistical methods for cost-effectiveness analysis that use cluster randomised trials. I have recently been awarded a MRC Early Career Fellowship on developing appropriate methods for addressing missing data in health economic evaluation, particularly, when data are hierarchical, non-randomised and missing not at random.

Teaching

I'm a seminar leader on MSc teaching modules: Introduction to Health Economics and Economic Evaluation.

Research

My main research interests lie in the development and application of statistical methods for the analysis of health outcomes, cost and cost-effectiveness data.

CURRENT PROJECTS

Methodological

1. MRC-funded research project on improving statistical methods for cost-effectiveness analyses that use cluster trials.
