Biography

Manuela Deidda joined HEHTA in January 2016 to work as Research Associate in Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment. Prior to joining HEHTA she held positions in the academia (University of Cagliari and University of Bolzano) and in international institutions (European Central Bank and European Commission Joint Research Centre). She worked on a range of topics, including households’ economics, health technology assessment and public policy evaluation. Furthermore, she developed expertise in quantitative research methods including analysis of individual-level dataset using microeconometrics methods and non-parametric techniques. She has an MSc and PhD in Economics and Finance. In her dissertation she investigated households’ financial decisions applying microeconometrics models to deal with endogenous regressors and self-selection, analysing survey data at cross sectional and longitudinal level.

She’s currently working on the economic evaluation of complex, Public Health Interventions. She’s also exploring the development of a framework to design and conduct economic evaluations alongside Natural experiments, with a focus on the challenges inherent to complex, Public Health Interventions.


Research interests

Manuela’s research interests are both methodological and applied and include the economic evaluation of population health interventions using natural experiments and alongside complex RCTs.
