Biography

Prior to becoming an academic in 1993, Rob worked for the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. Before joining the AIHW he was a senior Commonwealth public servant, working in three different departments (Transport, Aviation, Health) in various administrative, research and policy roles; including a period as a Senior Private Secretary in Senator Button's office. The common thread across Rob's early career was the design and utilisation of economic appraisal, which continued on into his academic roles. Since becoming an academic Rob has played an important role in the teaching and application of health economics in Melbourne, together with a number of international projects. He is particularly well known for the development an application of an innovative approach to priority setting ~ called ACE (Assessing Cost Effectiveness) ~ together with Guidelines to guide priority setting. His track record includes over $23 million in research income (including an NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence, an NHMRC Program Grant, 2 NHMRC Capacity Building Grants, an NHMRC Health Services Research Grant, a Strategic Grant in Health Economics, multiple NHMRC project grants, an ARC Discovery Grant, multiple international grants) and over 300 publications.

Research interests

Rob’s research interests focus on economic appraisal of health care services and priority setting, particularly in the area of health promotion, health technology assessment and pharmacoeconomics. Much of his evaluation work over the years has encouraged clinicians to work with policy-makers and academics to tackle important public health issues. During the last seven years in particular, he has developed and implemented an innovative approach to priority setting that is bridging the gap between academic rigour and applied policy-making in major areas of public health, with a strong focus on knowledge transfer. His evaluation work on the initial Assessing Cost Effectiveness (ACE) study in cancer, for example, impacted on Australia’s national cancer strategy and contributed to the funding of subsequent ACE studies in heart disease, mental health, obesity prevention and the prevention of non-communicable disease.
