Biosketch: As a member of the E-Health team of the Information Society Unit based at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) in Seville, Spain, I am primarily involved in the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) policy initiative. As primary investigator of the ‘MAFEIP-project’, I am responsible for developing a monitoring and assessment framework in order to link health and economic outcomes of interventions undertaken in the EIP on AHA and the overall EIP on AHA objectives (improved quality of life and sustainability of health systems).This involves reviewing and analysing policy relevant data, developing indicators and economic models, monitoring progress, and developing a web based tool based on a Markov process in order to assess health and economic impacts of EIP on AHA interventions, which ultimately feeds into the development of recommendations for policy making. Before joining the IPTS, I completed my PhD in health economics at Brunel Universities’ Health Economics Research Group (HERG) in London. My thesis was concerned with the geographic transferability of health economics studies using multilevel statistical modelling to assess variability in, and adjust results of, cost-effectiveness analyses conducted across different countries. Before that, I worked as a research fellow at HERG, looking into the cost-effectiveness of physical activity interventions and the prioritisation of clinical preventive services. Prior to joining HERG, I obtained a MSc in Health Economics from the University of York and a German Diploma in Health Economics and Management from the University of Applied Sciences in Ludwigshafen, Germany. I am a honorary lecturer at the University of Sheffield, School of Health & Related Research/Health Economics and Decision Sciences and acquired previous industry experience in the healthcare sector whilst working for different consultancies based in London and Budapest. During this time, my work focused on health economics and public health issues particularly in the context of middle income European economies. I am also a state approved health insurance professional with years of experience from working for a social health insurance company in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
