My research aim is to integrate theoretical and empirical findings with health policies, services, and practices through the application of economic theories and methods in health research. My primary research interests include measurement and valuation of work productivity loss due to illness, economic evaluation of health care interventions, and pharmaceutical policy.

I started my career as a health economist at Elizabeth Bruyère Research Institute in Ottawa. Then I moved to Vancouver in 2006 and worked at the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences (CHÉOS). I earned my master’s degree in Economics from the University of Ottawa and PhD in the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia (UBC). I received postdoctoral training at CHÉOS and UBC.

My publications can be found here.

Available to Supervise: I am currently looking for multiple graduate students for the following research areas:

  1. Measuring and valuing work productivity losses among different chronic conditions
  2. Economic efficiency of informal caregiving and caregiver support
  3. Economic evaluation of health interventions
  4. Generic drug pricing policies and their impact

Students in economics, statistics, biostatistics, or epidemiology with quantitative skills are encouraged to contact me directly. Interested candidates should email me their (i) cover letter, (ii) a complete CV (including publication & award list), (iii) a copy of the unofficial transcripts (post-secondary).
