Nick Scott

Nick in an Econometrician who uses mathematical, economic and statistical models to inform public health policy in order to better target health interventions among vulnerable populations. Some example include:

— Econometric, regression, and Markov models to understand the behavioural responses of people who inject drugs to changes in drug market dynamics;

— Deterministic transmission models of hepatitis C virus, hepatitis B virus, HIV and other sexually transmitted infections;

— Cost-effectiveness models investigating the impact of treating chronic hepatitis C virus on the future burden of liver disease;

— Intervention models to predict the benefits of hepatitis C virus vaccines;

— An agent-based stochastic model for performing alcohol policy experiments among populations of young heavy drinkers; and

— An allocative efficiency model as part of the ‘Optima’ collaboration.
