PhD (econ), Professor of Health Economics, Queensland University of Technology
Journal – Section Editor for BMC Health Services Research
Nicholas Graves works jointly between Queensland University of Technology and Queensland Health. His applied research brings economics to the study of health-care acquired infection, screening for chronic and infectious diseases and interventions that change health related behaviour for chronic conditions.
His methodology interests are modelling skewed data, especially length of stay in hospital and factors associated with prolongation; how decision makers value health care costs and the impact of different perspectives on decision making. He is developing a programme of research that uses Bayesian methods for the synthesis of evidence subsequently used to inform parameters in decision models. He manages a research team and supervises PhD students.
