Biography

Paul joined HERU as a Senior Research Fellow in October 2002 and is now Professor of Health Economics. His main research interests include the study of economic aspects of healthy ageing and social care, and the development of methods to design and evaluate self-management strategies in long-term conditions. He is the lead for the Health Behaviour theme within HERU. Current research projects focus on measurement of the impacts of health behaviour change (principally diet and physical activity) on health, well-being and life satisfaction, both in healthy populations and amongst populations with long-term health conditions. Paul's research also encompasses estimation of the cost-effectiveness of interventions that aim to improve healthy lifestyles and mental health.

Paul holds an MA Honours degree in Economics from the University of Aberdeen, an MSc in Health Economics from the University of York and a PhD from the University of Newcastle. Prior to his present appointment, he was a Research Associate, then Lecturer, in Health Economics at the University of Newcastle.

Research Overview

My main research interests include the development and application of methods to design and evaluate self-management strategies in long-term conditions. This falls within the Health Behaviour theme within HERU, which I currently lead. My other long-standing interests include the study of economic aspects of healthy ageing and social care. Current research projects focus on measurement of the impacts of health behaviour change (principally diet and physical activity) on health, well-being and life satisfaction, both in healthy populations and amongst populations with long-term health conditions. My research also encompasses estimation of the cost-effectiveness of interventions that aim to improve healthy lifestyles and mental health.
