I am an economist with an interest in data-driven research that can inform health policy and services. My current research addresses questions related to the economics of medical technology, precision medicine, and multiple sclerosis. While I have mostly used secondary data – and I am experienced in analyzing large administrative population datasets from across Canada – I have also participated in designing and administering surveys to collect primary data.
Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Collaboration for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE), at the University of British Columbia's Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Throughout my Postdoctoral Fellowship I have been funded by the Mitacs Accelerate program and an endMS Postdoctoral Fellowship Award. I hold a PhD (2020) and M.A (2016) in Economics from the University of Manitoba and a B.A (2014), also in Economics, from the University of Havana.
