Profile

Biography

Laetitia joined the Team for Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment (TEEHTA) in September 2017 and previously worked as a Research Fellow at the Academic Unit of Health Economics of the University of Leeds. She holds a PhD in Health Economics and an MSc in Environmental Economics from the University of York.  Before joining academia, she graduated with an MSc in Management and Finance from Grenoble Graduate Business School in France and worked in the asset management industry for two years as well as in investment banking (project finance).

Her PhD research, funded by the ESRC, focused on methods to improve the evaluation of the health benefits and cost-effectiveness of improvements in air quality. She has developed extensive expertise in developing economic models to support cost-effectiveness appraisals, be it applied to public health policies such as air pollution control and smoking prevention or applied to health care technologies. She provides technical support and guidance across a number of health care technologies assessments for NICE and supports the Department of Health Policy Research Unit in economic evaluation on assessing how NICE methods and processes could be adapted to appropriately assess the value of new antimicrobials.

Laetitia also has a keen interest in value of information methods and their application to support health care resource allocation in low-and-middle income countries. As part of the Thanzi la Onse program grant, she is currently developing a standalone application to support local decision-makers in evaluating the value of undertaking further research when designing health benefit packages.
