Biography

Houra received both a BSc and a MSc degree in Economics from the Faculty of Economics and Political Sciences at the Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran. She then read Economics at the University of Leicester, gaining a MSc. She then continued her academic studies at the University of Leicester and was awarded her PhD in 2015. Her thesis, entitled “Essays on exchange rates behaviour”.

Following her Ph.D., Houra joined Stirling University as an econometrician working on a CSO-funded project to evaluate the effectiveness of tobacco control Mass Media Campaigns on smoking-related health outcomes applying time series analyses. She has continued this methodological interest here at HEHTA as a lead researcher of a NIHR-funded project of evaluation of legislation to reduce the drink-drive limit in Scotland.

She is currently working on a CSO-funded project to develop and validate the performance of Type 2 diabetes policy model and a web-based decision aid dashboard.

Research interests

Houra’s main research interests are focused on striving to adapt and develop econometric and statistical methodologies traditionally applied in the wider economics field to health care research, especially applying time series analyses and modelling technique to evaluate routinely collected clinical datasets, public health intervention, and natural experiment.
