I am currently Visiting Professor of Cognitive Health Economics at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford and Professor of Health Economics and Chair of the Department of Health Economics, Centre for Public Health at the Medical University of Vienna. I have over a decade research collaboration with the Department including the CEQUEL, OXTEXT, OCTET and PreDicT projects and the development of the OxCAP-MH instrument through the operationalisation of the capabilities approach for outcome measurement in mental health research.
I previously held appointments at the University College London (UCL), the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the Health Economics Research Centre, Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford where I remain a Research Associate.
I hold a DPhil in Public Health from the University of Oxford; an MSc in Health Economics from the University of York; and a Doctor of Medicine (MD), a BSc in Economics and a BA in Medical Translation from the University of Szeged. I was elected for Fellow of the UK Faculty of Public Health through Distinction in 2014.
My main expertise is applied economic evaluation and outcomes research primarily in the fields of mental health, public health, diabetes and perinatal health. Other long ongoing research interests include cost-effective clinical guideline development; broader system-level evaluation and international comparison of health services; and comparative health systems and health care rationing research. The Department of Health Economics at the Medical University of Vienna is also active in research areas such as health information, health policy, personalised medicine, migrant health, and unit cost development for Austria; and in the establishment of health economics relevant teaching and research programmes in Austria.
