Research Fellow



Sebastian Hinde is a Research Fellow in the Team for Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment (TEEHTA) in the Centre for Health Economics at the University of York. He joined TEEHTA in October 2010 after previously completing a BSc in Economics and an MSc in Health Economics both from the University of York.

Sebastian has worked on economic evaluations of health technologies in a range of disease areas including epilepsy and lung cancer. He has also contributed to technology appraisals for the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Recent methodological research has focussed on methods for the estimation of the NICE cost-effectiveness threshold. His other research interests include methods of calibration of natural history models to observed incidence and prevalence data. In addition to research activities he is currently creating a suite of animated videos aimed at introducing the core concepts of health economics (

Sebastian’s MSc dissertation was in the cost of physical activity related injuries, supervised at the York Health Economics Consortium. In 2009 he was enrolled in the Department of Health’s internship program.
