I am a decision sciences and health economics researcher with interests in uncertainty and evidence in decision-analytic modelling and health economic evaluations, value of information analysis, and health disparities. I am currently a Senior Research Fellow (Associate Professor) at the Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at the University of York. Further, I serve as a NICE Technology Appraisal Committee member. I am also a Research Affiliate at the Yale University School of Public Health and an Affiliated Member at the Center for Healthcare Research in Pediatrics (CHeRP), Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute.
Previously, I worked as a Senior Advisor at the Norwegian Health Directorate and an Associate Professor at the University of Oslo, Norway. In these roles, I gained experience in national policy-making in healthcare by evaluating preventive interventions and priority settings, and developing national guidelines, and maintained an active role in research, mentoring and teaching.
I completed my PhD in Health Economic Evaluation and Health Policy at the University of Oslo, Norway, and spent 2 years of my 3-year PhD program at Yale University, first as a visiting PhD candidate and thereafter working as a Postgraduate Research Fellow. During my PhD, I co-founded and have since co-led the Collaborative Network for Value of Information (ConVOI), which is an international group of over 20 researchers with interests in the application and development of methods for value of information calculation. I pursued a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School and the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute where to address challenges associated with the assessment of cost-effectiveness and decision making in precision medicine, also focusing on health disparities. Prior to my PhD, I worked as a Senior Health Economist at LINK Medical Research, Norway, developing and adapting decision-analytic models and preparing Health Technology Assessment (HTA).
