Associate Professor of Health Economics
- Senior Health Economist at NPEU
Oliver joined the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (NPEU) as the Senior Health Economist in November 2013 working previously at the Health Economics Research Centre (HERC) during the period 2002-2013. He currently leads a team of health economists involved in a programme of work conducting economic evaluations and stated-preference studies in maternal and child health. He has extensive experience using experimental and observational data, and evidence synthesis decision analytic models to inform cost-effectiveness evaluations. His programme of work also includes studies estimating the long-term healthcare costs of prematurity and the long-term health care costs of women and their babies after successful fertility treatment. Oliver is interested in the valuation of health for decision-making and he has undertaken a series of studies to understand how to value children's health for resource allocation. He is actively involved in teaching and postgraduate supervision and is an independent member of the UK National Screening Programme. He is a co-Editor-in-Chief of the academic journal Health and Quality of Life Outcomes.
