I am an economist specialising in health economics (FOR — 140208 Health Economics, 1402 Applied Economics, 1117 Public Health and Health Services). My research currently focuses on algorithmic development of assessing fairness in mental health and health care use in Australia. I am an approved and trained user of big secured datasets such as the National Health Survey (NHS) of the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) of the National Centre for Longitudinal Data (NCLD). I have developed codes and computational health economics tools to manage, reshape, merge and analyse big data for my PhD research projects as well as for other funded research projects with international collaborations of researchers in the USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia, and Bangladesh. I have published several top-ranked peer-reviewed journals and, recently, my work has received the ‘USQ publication excellence award 2020’ and ‘USQ Award for Excellence in Doctoral Research, 2021’.
