Louise joined the Health Economics Unit in October 2012, after working in health and social care for several years.
Louise is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to conduct health economic and cost-effectiveness analysis on interventions aiming to control and prevent sexually transmitted infections. She is also involved in work exploring the methodologies used to measure outcomes in the areas of sexual and reproductive health.
Louise’s research relates to applied economic evaluations in the areas of sexual health and women’s reproductive health.
Louise is currently leading on the health economics aspects of the NIHR funded BALLSEYE programme. This programme aims to improve sexual health in young men by implementing new methods for the treatment of male sex partners in primary care, and piloting a novel model for the promotion of STI testing.
