Rodrigo Moreno-Serra



Rodrigo Moreno-Serra is a 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, University of Sao Paulo and Federal University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, as well as consultancy work for institutions including WHO, OECD, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, 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 numerous academic papers and policy reports dealing with health system financing (especially on international comparisons of health system performance, with a particular interest in health system financing and financial risk protection) and the impact evaluation of health policies and programmes in developing and developed countries, among other topics. Rodrigo is very keen on using economic analysis as a tool to contribute to current health policy debates; examples of this are his ongoing work on health financing interventions for Universal Health Coverage, as well as on assessing the consequences of civil conflict and forced displacement for individual health and the health system, topics that are 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.
