Research interests

Annes research interests lie in the economic evaluation of various health interventions which have ranged in recent years over

  • treatments for the mental health conditions of depression and schizophrenia,
  • childhood obesity prevention and
  • cardiovascular disease prevention.




Anne has developed models that quantify the production gains likely to be associated with preventive health interventions leading to reductions in the prevalence of important modifiable health risk factors. These models have been widely applied and published.
