Andrea is Professor of Health Economics in the Team for Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment, part of the Centre for Health Economics. He is co-editor of the journals Value in Health and PLOS One. Andrea’s research interests focus on the application of statistical methods for the analysis of cost‑effectiveness and health outcomes data, as well as the use of evidence synthesis techniques for healthcare decision making. He has evaluated health technologies in several clinical areas including breast and advanced colorectal cancer, endovascular aneurysm repair, coronary revascularisation, diabetes, neck and chronic low back pain, surgical interventions for urinary stress incontinence, and hysterectomy.
Andrea holds an MSc in Health Economics (1998) and a PhD in Economics (2005), both awarded by the University of York. In 2007 he completed a post‑doctoral Research and Training Fellowship in Health Services Research awarded by The Wellcome Trust, to investigate the use of statistical methods for the analysis of multicentre and multinational individual patient‑level cost‑effectiveness data, where the objective is to inform reimbursement decisions in different jurisdictions. As part of his Fellowship, Andrea spent a six‑month research visiting period at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Toronto (Ontario, Canada).
His work on the analysis of multinational cost-effectiveness data received the ISPOR 2008 Research Excellence Award for Methodology.
In 2009 Andrea was awarded a Career Development Fellowship funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) titled “Developing economic evaluation methods for decision making: the value of access to individual patient data”.
Andrea is currently a member of the NICE Technology Appraisal Committee, the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Programme Grants for Applied Research funding sub-panel, and the National Awareness and Early Diagnosis (NAEDI) Research Workstream scientific committee of the Cancer Research-UK.
