Mr James Dunham
Graduate Research Assistant
I am a health economics modeller for PenTAG, carrying out cost-effectiveness appraisals of various health technologies for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). This comprises of evaluating proposed evidence for its logical consistency, mathematical fidelity, and implementation. This can take the form of Single Technology Appraisals (STAs), reviewing company submitted evidence, or Multiple Technology Appraisals (MTAs), which typically involve assessing multiple technologies and multiple indicators. MTAs also often involve building an appropriate economic model from scratch.
My background is mostly in pure economics, especially in development economics and experimental economics. In addition to these interests, I am a keen language learner trying to tackle German, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, and a passionate organist/pianist.
