Naomi Gibbs
Research Fellow



Naomi joined the Centre for Health Economics in January 2022 following completion of her PhD in Public Health and Economic Decision Science with the University of Sheffield. Naomi's PhD focussed on decision modelling to appraise cost and health outcomes of a hypothetical minimum unit pricing policy for alcohol in South Africa. Her work focused on differential policy impact by equity relevant subgroups and included considerable local stakeholder engagement, leading to further work with both national and provincial governments.

Naomi is particularly interested in economic methods which support decision makers' concern for equity and is lead convenor of the Equity-Informative Economic Evaluation Special Interest Group, part of the international Health Economics Association (iHEA). 
Previous to her PhD Naomi completed an MSc in Economics and Health Economics from the University of Sheffield, she also holds a BSc in Economics from the University of Manchester. Naomi has additional experience working in the third sector including supporting refugees in the UK and working for the British Red Cross.
