Having just completed the MSc Health Economics programme at the University of York I am now working as a research assistant in health economics at the University of Bristol. The focus of the research which I am currently working on is the economic evaluation of randomised control trials. My responsibilities include incremental analysis of comparative treatments, writing health economic analysis plans, and assisting on the design of study protocol for future trails.
Further interests include, the economic analysis of mental health, the impact of 'legal highs' on adolescent development and the lasting impact, and the development of applications for more accurate data and higher response rates in clinical trails.
I aim to begin studying for a PhD in the field of health economics within the next 3 years.
Research Assistant @ I am currently working alongside Dr Elsa Marques at the University of Bristol. My main working responsibilities include the accurate design of study questionnaires to ensure accurate trial data with high response rates, the design of health economic analysis plans, and the incremental analysis of randomised control trial data. From October 2015 to Present (3 months) Bristol, United KingdomResearch Assistant @ To complete the MSc Health Economics programme at the University of York, I spent three months in Barcelona writing my final dissertation. The project aimed to the identify any differences in adolescent drug initiation behaviours in response to changes in macroeconomic conditions. Using data from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) surveys, the magnitude and direction of behavioural changes were estimated using a logistic regression model. From July 2015 to September 2015 (3 months) Barcelona Area, SpainScanning Administrator @ Between my undergraduate and postgraduate studies I secured a temporary full time position at American Express in Brighton. The position was an admin working with two teams, where the main responsibility was the management of incoming and outgoing documentation. This role required good attention to detail to ensure that all documentation was accurately processed for future reference. From July 2014 to September 2014 (3 months) Brighton, United KingdomResearch Assistant @ Once I had completed my undergraduate degree I spent two weeks working as a research assistant for the University of Liverpool research unit. I assisted research fellows on a number of projects, collecting data and creating presentations. The main project I assisted on was a long term project which was looking at the potential impact of moving a number of health care services away from Warrington general and into a number of primary care homes in the community. This placement gave me valuable experience of systematic reviews, public health research and writing research proposals. From July 2014 to July 2014 (1 month) Liverpool, United KingdomInternship @ Before I had finished my degree in Liverpool I arranged a number of work experience placements to try and get a grasp of some of the industries I could be entering once I had my BSc. For two weeks I shadowed chief executive Timos Timotheou. Timos showed me his day to day responsibilities, let me sit in on a number of meetings, and took me to a number of corporate events which were part of the international business festival. This two week period gave me first hand experience in the client based world of investment management. From June 2014 to June 2014 (1 month) Liverpool, United KingdomKiosk Worker @ During the holiday periods of my undergraduate degree I worked for Sodexo, one of the UK's largest hospitality companies. I was based in the falmer stadium, working on the food and drink kiosks when football matches were being played at the stadium. I worked in a team of between eight to fifteen people serving members of the public. Due to the timing of the football games the service periods where extremely busy, meaning good interpersonal skill was key to accurately process transactions and deal with any customer disputes. From August 2012 to June 2014 (1 year 11 months) Brighton, United Kingdom
