Projects per year
I am a health economist and health services researcher and hold a joint appointment with the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH). My main research interests lie in the area of health system performance. I am interested in specific sectors such as primary care and mental health care as well as the topic of access to health care as measured by waiting times and unmet need. Other research interests cover the organization and financing of health care including purchasing and provider payment.
I am the PI of the APPEAL (Assessing Primary Care Performance in Luxembourg) project, funded by the FNR (Luxembourg National Research Fund). I am undertaking this project in collaboration with other researchers in economics, sociology and statistics from LISER and LIH, with the mentorship of local and external senior scientists with expertise in health economics, performance assessment and international health system comparisons. I am also currently undertaking research into unmet need for health care in Luxembourg using the European Health Interview Survey (EHIS) and across European countries using the EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC).
I am interested in undertaking interdisciplinary research and I have collaborated with colleagues from a range of disciplines including epidemiology and public health, sociology and social policy, political science, law, management, psychology and psychiatry. I value mixed-methods research and have expertise in the quantitative analysis of administrative and survey data and in qualitative methods including case studies, document review, in-person interviews and participant observation.
I have published in various journals including Social Science and Medicine, the European Journal of Health Economics, the Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics, Health Economics Policy and Law, Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research, BMJ Open, the Journal of Health Services Research and Policy, Health Policy, and Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology.
