Biography

Elisabet started working as a research assistant at the Health Economics Research Unit in June 2016. She joined the Assessment of Technologies theme and is currently involved in an economic evaluation comparing stapled haemorrhoidopexy to traditional haemorrhoidectomy, by developing a health-economic model alongside the randomised controlled trial. She graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2014 with a MA (Hons) in Economics, and an MSc in Economics of Health in 2015. Her MSc thesis was on the use of value-of-information analysis for healthcare technology decision-making, using a case study of the most cost-effective inguinal hernia repair strategy in the UK (comparing open pre-peritoneal mesh repair and laparoscopic hernia repair to Lichtenstein mesh repair).
