Research Associate
I am a Research Associate in Warwick Clinical Trials Unit where I am responsible for the health economic evaluation for several large clinical trials. I joined in 2014 after completing the MSc in Health Economics at the University of York. My MSc dissertation focused on using decision modelling to estimate the cost-effectiveness of surveillance versus immediate surgery upon the finding of a certain pre-cancer in ulcerative colitis patients.

Stavros Petrou resizedStavros Petrou

Professor of Health Economics

Prior to this appointment, I was employed as a health economist by the University of Oxford, worked for the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (NPEU), and held a joint affiliation between the NPEU and the University of Oxford's Health Economics Research Centre (HERC). I remain a research associate at the Department of Public Health, University of Oxford.

Here at Warwick I work collaboratively across Warwick Medical School and with and colleagues in the University's Economics Department, which is widely regarded as one of the top university Economics Departments in the UK and Europe in terms of its teaching and research. I conduct my research both alongside large Phase III clinical trials and within health technology appraisal reviews. I pursue a methodological and applied research agenda on economic aspects of health conditions studied.

Research interests include:

  • Economic aspects of perinatal and paediatric health and health care;
  • The development of utility measurement in these contexts;
  • Methodological concerns surrounding the conduct of economic evaluation alongside randomised controlled trials.

Applications from potential PhD students wishing to work in these areas are welcome.
