Oxford Mental Health Economics and Policy
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 20 years research collaboration with the Department in the area of mental health economics including the CEQUEL, OXTEXT, OCTET, PreDicT, PAX-D and PETRUSHKA trials and the development of the OxCAP-MH instrument through the operationalisation of the capabilities approach for outcome measurement in mental health research.
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 and methodological economic evaluation and outcomes research linked to clinical trials and through modelling primarily in the fields of mental health, public health, perinatal and palliative care, and various chronic diseases. Other long ongoing research interests include cost-effective clinical guideline/HTA development; broader system-level evaluation and international comparison of health services; and comparative health systems and health care rationing research including personalized care.
