Co-editor of the Journal of Health Economics
My main research interest is in health economics, mostly microeconomic theory and microeconometrics applied to selective topics. These include waiting times for non-emergency treatment, hospital quality competition, contracting theory applied to health care, pay for performance and coordination between health and social care.
I am willing to supervise students on theoretical and empirical microeconomic issues in health economics.
