Research Fellow, Centre for Health Economics
Jessica Ochalek is a Research Fellow in the Team for Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment (TEEHTA) in the Centre for Health Economics.
Jessica’s research focuses on priority setting in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and, in particular, the application of economic evaluation in those settings. She is interested in projects that combine policy relevance and the development of new methods. Examples of recent work include setting out a framework to support the development of a new Essential Health Package in Malawi and the estimation of health opportunity costs across LMICs.
She holds an MSc in Health Economics from the University of York, a Master of Public Health degree from Boston University and a BA in Global Studies from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.
