As a researcher trained in conducting economic evaluations, I am interested in understanding how economic analyses and health technology assessment can enhance the well-being of individuals requiring rehabilitation. Specifically, how can these analyses help inform the development of technologies that can improve health? Currently, I am involved in studies examining the cost-effectiveness of health care interventions for individuals with spinal cord injury and other functional disabilities. The methods I commonly employ for my studies include decision analytical modelling, Markov modelling, micro-simulations and discrete event simulation. I have experience working with both clinical trial data, as well as health care administrative data.
