My mainly focus is on the conduction of economic considerations associated with health and medical interventions within RCTs. However, I’m enthusiasm in conducting model based economic evaluation through common decision making techniques in this field.
Synthesizing relevant evidence through meta- analysis is another of my interests. Of course as an human I am responsible for reducing the gaps and inequalities, so analyzing health inequalities and making the sense in policy makers through current methodologies are among my research priorities.
