Research interests

Heather's work focuses on economic evaluations of healthcare interventions. This involves a range of methods, including decision-analytic modelling, conceptual modelling, regression and survival analysis.  

Her current projects include:

  • Economic evaluation alongside a clinical trial of an intervention to reduce symptoms of Long COVID: The ReDIRECT Study
  • Economic evaluation alongside a clinical trial of cardiac rehabilitation for patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: The REACH-HFpEF Study
  • Early economic modelling of devices using quantum technology to remotely monitor health: QUEST Project
