David is a health economist, awarded his PhD in October 2016 where he completed the first cost-effectiveness analysis of healthcare interventions designed to reduce the hospital transmission of Clostridium difficile infection. Since then, he has worked on numerous projects across a diverse range of areas including hepatology, juvenile arthritis, medication management and diabetes, amongst others.
David is excited by any opportunity to improve the efficiency of health services by finding the most cost-effective approach to managing the scarce healthcare budget, regardless of the clinical area or complexity of the problem. He has research and teaching experience in biostatistics and epidemiology.
David is committed to finding ways to make improvements to the health of the wider community by critically appraising the way that services are delivered and managed within the healthcare system. He also has an aversion to waste.
