Ph.D Health economics

Research areas

I share my time between SBU (Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment) and CMT (Center for Medical Technology Assessment) at Linköping University. I defended my thesis in 2009, entitled “How to include relatives and productivity loss in a cost-effectiveness analysis -theoretical and empirical studies”. I have done health economics analyses in various areas, eg. methodological issues, prevention of thromboembolic events and health economics in dentistry.
