Neelam works as a Senior Research Fellow in Healthcare Modelling for SHTAC.

As a health economist, I am interested in studying healthcare priority setting methods in low-and-middle income countries.

Since joining SHTAC as a Research Fellow in August 2013, Neelam has worked on several economic evaluations of health technologies.  She has contributed to evidence reviews of submissions to the NICE Single Technology and Multiple Technology Assessment Programmes on a range of topics including oncology, retinal conditions, Hepatitis C, Morquio A Syndrome, cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary fibrosis, ulcerative colitis and public health interventions.  She also teaches in SHTAC’s external training programme on introduction to health economics.

Prior to joining SHTAC, Neelam worked as a health economic modeller for a pharmaceutical consultancy firm and as research assistant in health economic modelling at School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR), University of Sheffield.

Neelam’s research areas of interest include public health interventions and global health, with a primary focus on adolescent health. She works closely with partners at MRC LEU on research investigating behavioural interventions to improve the health of adolescents.  She is currently working with colleagues from the University of Southampton LifeLab on the project: EACH-B Engaging Adolescents in Changing Behaviour. In 2019, Neelam was awarded an NIHR Pre-Doctoral Fellowship to investigate health economic methodologies in priority settings.
