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 models of healthcare financing and payment among developed countries (e.g. US, EU5, Canada) and their outcomes in terms of population health. I completed my MSPH at Johns Hopkins University where I focused on health policy, health finance & management, and public health informatics. Before that, 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 enjoy modern art, literary fiction, art house cinema, and tabletop gaming. I also enjoy travelling, rock-climbing, hiking, and kayaking.
