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.
