OHE is Pleased to Announce the Appointment Two New Economists: Marina Rodes Sanchez and Chris Sampson

OHE is pleased to welcome Marina Rodes Sanchez and Chris Sampson in October 2017.

Marina Rodes Sanchez joins OHE following the completion of her MSc in Health Economics at City, University of London.

Marina’s research interests include the evaluation of healthcare programs, including quality of life factors that directly impact decision making. She is also interested in the economics of health care systems in emerging markets.

As part of her MSc Marina undertook a summer research placement at OHE, where she studied whether and to what extent people in the UK have heterogeneous preferences when valuing health states in EQ-5D valuation tasks (for news of OHE’s research in this area click here).

Prior to her MSc Marina worked as a Healthcare Consultant at Antares Consulting, where she was involved in projects for hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and public bodies. Marina also has an undergraduate degree in Economics from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, which included a semester spent as a visiting student at HEC Montréal.

Chris Sampson joins OHE from the University of Nottingham  where he has worked as a research assistant for the past seven years. In this role, Chris mainly worked alongside clinical trials, analysing individual-level resource use and health-related quality of life data, and conducting economic evaluations.

Chris is working towards a PhD (part-time), also at the University of Nottingham. His work is part of an NIHR Programme Grant evaluating individualised risk-based screening for diabetic eye disease, which has facilitated a variety of methodological and applied research in trial-based cost-effectiveness analysis, meta-analysis, decision analytic modelling, and studies using large data sets.

Chris’s research interests include the development of methods for cost-effectiveness analysis and the measurement and value of health. He is also founder of The Academic Health Economists’ Blog.
