Zoé is a Research Fellow within the Health Workforce and Systems research group. She joined the University of Southampton in 2020.

She is leading and collaborating on a large research portfolio exploring the role of working conditions on the retention and performance of the health workforce, nurses in particular. As an economist by training, she uses a range of micro-econometric methods and theories to robustly quantify and provide empirical content to these relationships. Her expertise lies in independently analysing large cross-sectional and longitudinal workforce datasets. She has also designed and conducted discrete choice experiments (DCE) to elicit the job preferences of the health workforce and estimate potential trade-offs.

Prior to joining the University of Southampton, Zoé was a Research Fellow at the Health Economics Research Unit (HERU) at the University of Aberdeen. She applied a range of micro-econometric methods to investigate the behaviour and well-being of the healthcare workforce (nurses, medical doctors) in areas of mental health, work absence, and retirement. She also investigated public sector resource allocation to inform NHS funding in England.
