Profile

Biography

Rodrigo Moreno-Serra is a Reader (Associate Professor) and Co-Team Leader of the Global Health Team. He joined the Centre for Health Economics in September 2016. Before moving to the University of York he was a Lecturer at the Department of Economics, University of Sheffield (2014-16), and an MRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Imperial College London Business School. Rodrigo’s previous professional appointments also include spells at the World Bank (Development Economics Research Group), University of Sao Paulo (Department of Economics) and Federal University of Sao Paulo (Paulista Center for Health Economics), as well as consultancy work for institutions such as WHO, OECD, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Rockefeller Foundation and Save the Children.

Rodrigo’s research interests include a variety of topics in the fields of health economics, global health and development economics. He has published academic papers and policy reports dealing with the impact evaluation of health policies and programmes in developing and developed countries, from both the methodological and applied points of view. He is currently performing research work on the topic of international comparisons of health systems performance, with a particular interest in health system financing and financial risk protection. Rodrigo is very keen on using economic analysis as a tool to contribute to current health policy debates; an example of this is his ongoing work on universal health coverage, a topic very much in the current agenda of national governments and international organisations.

Rodrigo was born in Santiago, Chile, but moved to Brazil at an early age. He was raised in the city of Sao Paulo, where he obtained a BSc (Hons) in Economics and an MSc in Economics of Institutions and Development, both from the University of Sao Paulo. He then moved to the United Kingdom and received a PhD in Economics from the University of York.
