Patricia’s main research interests include: health-related quality of life measures, subjective well-being, cost-effectiveness thresholds, estimation of health-related outcomes, health policy evaluation, ordered choice models and theory of preferences.
She is also completing a piece of research examining the issue of adaptation to health states. The existence of adaptation may potentially explain the disparity between the valuation of the impact of a hypothetical specific condition on health, and that of someone who experiences it. Overall the empirical analysis finds that duration of an illness has a positive impact on self-assessed health. This positive relationship also holds when looking at specific chronic conditions, but it is only statistically significant for a subset of those. This research paper has been presented at several conferences, including the European Conference on Health Economics, the American Society of Health Economists and the Health Economists’ Study Group.
Patricia joins OHE from City University London where she has worked a Lecturer in Economics since June 2009. Prior to joining City, Patricia undertook a PhD in Quantitative Economics at the University of Alicante. She holds an MSc in Quantitative Economics and BSc in Mathematics, also from the University of Alicante.
