I have been a Health Economist for over 25 years, following undergraduate and postgraduate studies in economics at the University of York. Upon leaving York in 1991, I worked in Sydney, Cambridge, Bristol, Melbourne and Norwich, before joining the LSHTM in May 2007. From 2008-2011 I served as Head of Department of Global Health & Development, and since 2011 have served as Dean of Faculty of Public Health & Policy.
My current interests are broadly in the interaction and interface between a nations health system and other systems - both within the nation (e.g. agriculture, manufacturing and finance sectors) and between different countries (e.g. through movement of patients and health professionals). This interest has been manifest in two areas: (i) macro-economic modeling of health (care), concerning the impact of communicable and non-communicable diseases and related polices; and(ii) economic analysis of the impact of trade and trade agreements. A significant programme of work that I am involved in, which concerns these areas is with the Leverhulme Centre for Intergrative Research on Agriculture and Health.
