Research Interests and Expertise
Andrew’s research interests are focused on methodologies relating to economic evaluations, decision analytical modelling and health technology assessment. For his thesis, Andrew is working in partnership with First Nations community organizations to estimate the health and economic impacts of hepatitis C infection among First Nations populations in Ontario.
