In my research, I apply economic theory and method to issues related to human health behaviour. Topics include ageing populations, new health technologies, health-care systems, and unhealthy behaviour. In recent years, I have devoted my research mainly to theoretical modelling of human health behaviour in various settings or contexts, including family health decision-making. I have published extensively in economic, medical and public-health journals.
