Matthias joined CHE in May 2018 as a research fellow for the Thanzi la Onse project. Matthias holds degrees from the University of Heidelberg (Master-level degree in economics), University College London (MSc Global Health and Development), and LMU Munich (Master of Business Research).
After working as a health economist in Malawi, Matthias wrote his doctoral dissertation at LMU Munich with the title 'Linking precision medicine and public health: An economic perspective on mammography screening'. In his dissertation, he focused on the interaction between targeted prevention and behavioural aspects with the specific example of patient adherence to mammographic screening for female breast cancer.
Matthias’ research interest lies in global health and decision analysis. Specifically in exploring how challenges deriving from health service implementation or upscaling can be addressed in decision analytical modelling, for example by integrating unexpected patient behaviour, organisational limitations, or political constraints.
