Dr Ellen Nolte
15-17 Tavistock Place
I (re-)joined the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies as coordinator of its the two London offices at the LSE and the LSHTM in October 2014. I was previously Director of the Health and Healthcare Policy programme at RAND Europe, Cambridge, UK and before that, Senior Lecturer at the LSHTM. My background is in public health with a Masters degree in public health (MPH) from the University of Bielefeld, Germany, and a PhD from London University (LSHTM).
My main interest and expertise is in health systems research, international health care comparisons and performance assessment. Over the past 10 years I led a programme of work around international health care comparisons and led major research projects in the field of health services and system responses to chronic disease. I am also experienced in the systematic analysis of population health indicators across European countries, including the application of demographic and epidemiological approaches to understanding factors contributing to population health outcomes.
