I studied Economics at the University of Aberdeen and after graduation in the summer of 2013 I completed a six-week research placement at the Health Economics Research Unit in Aberdeen. I completed my Master’s Degree at the University of Aberdeen in 2014 with the help of the Gavin Mooney Studentship award.
My PhD at CHEME focuses on the economics of Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Motor Neurone Disease is a devastating neurological illness which dramatically reduces the life span and the quality of life of the patients living with the condition. The PhD has three aims; to estimate the costs associated with the Disease, measuring MND patient’s health related quality of life and the development of an economic model to assess the cost-effectiveness of treatments for Motor Neurone Disease. It involves collaboration with the Walton Centre in Liverpool.
