Researcher biography

I apply health economic theories and methods to understand the social and economic values of health and social care and draw policies that improve the values of services (through improving quality and operational efficiency) and achieve equal distribution of service access and utilisation, especially for the disadvantaged groups.

My current research activities cover evaluating interventions and health outcomes in the older population and people with brain injury and cognitive impairment and measurement of efficiency and equity in the health and social care sectors. I work closely with researchers from multiple backgrounds, from engineers to medical professionals and artists, industries partners, advocates and consumers of health and social care services.

I became an Atlantic Fellow in Equity in Brain Health in 2020. My host institution is the Global Brain Health Institute at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland).
