Hi! I'm Justin. I'm a PhD student in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Dr. Carol Brayne. My research focuses on comparative health policy with a focus on responses of European OECD countries to macroeconomic shocks (e.g. the Great Recession, the Asian Financial Crisis) and their consequent outcomes on population health. I completed my MSPH at Johns Hopkins University where I focused on health policy, health finance & management, and public health informatics. I completed my BA and BSc at the University of British Columbia in my hometown of Vancouver, Canada.
Before starting my PhD, I was a Senior Associate with Avalere Health in its Reimbursement and Market Access practice where I helped life science companies, patient advocates, and charitable foundations solve coverage, coding, payment, and patient access problems facing drugs, biologics, and medical devices. In particular, I helped develop optimal product launch strategies, tactical product lifecycle management analyses, and analytic models to make use of big data to support business decisions.
In my spare time, I serve as Treasurer for the Wolfson College Students' Association, as a coxswain for the Wolfson College Boat Club, and as Theatre Editor for The Tab Cambridge. I also enjoy modern art, kayaking, and photography.
