I am an early career health services and health economics researcher. My current work includes evaluating the cost-effectiveness of a national lung cancer screening program and cost-effective ways of addressing the supportive care needs of cancer patients.
My PhD investigates the epidemiology and cost of uncontrolled hypertension in Australian general practice using an extensive database of electronic health records (MedicineInsight). In addition, my PhD also explores the use of insights from behavioural economics to address medication adherence.
Before immigrating to Australia, I worked in public health and health economics research groups at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa. My research included the cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer treatments in HIV-positive women and costing studies in sexual and reproductive health.
