Biography

Laura joined the team for economic evaluation and health technology assessment in 1999. She completed her PhD at York in 2008, titled 'Characterising structural uncertainty within decision analytic models’. She has worked on a number of projects involving the use of expert elicited data within decision analytic models and is particularly interested in this area and its application to issues of extrapolation uncertainty.

Laura has worked on a wide range of applied and methodological projects and has gained extensive experience of modelling the cost-effectiveness of arthritis and musculoskeletal diseases, especially psoriatic arthritis. 

Laura has contributed to technology appraisals for NICE in her role as a member of one of the independent academic groups undertaking assessments and evidence reviews. She recently joined as a member of a Technology Appraisal Committee. She is also a member of the HS&DR Researcher Prioritisation Committee.

Laura currently leads the Applied Research and Collaborations (ARC) Yorkshire and Humber Health Economics theme, with Tracey Young at Sheffield. The program of work includes the use of economic evaluation across sectors, economic evaluation for local decision makers and the use of routine data for economic evaluation.

Laura is the deputy chair of the equality and diversity action group and was a member of the Athena swan group prior to this.
