Area of Focus
  • Cost-Effective Management of Hepatocellular Carcinoma
  • Health Economics
  • Liver Disease
  • Equity in Healthcare
Summary of Research

The overarching theme to my research is how to better utilize limited health care resources through economic models as well as understanding potential disparities in access to care. I have created economic models for testing patients in pregnancy in hepatitis B, hepatic encephalopathy, screening for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the community and palliative management of ascites. I have evaluated policies for liver transplantation in Canada including for liver cancer and drug access in GI and hepatology.
