Welcome to Tianxin Pan

Tianxin Pan has recently joined the Health Economics Unit at the Centre for Health Policy as a Research Fellow. She is currently working with Dr Ilias Goranitis on economic evaluation on genomic sequencing testing among patients with complex neurological disease, and after November 2019 will also be working with Professor Nancy Devlin on the measurement on patient reported outcomes and the cost-effectiveness thresholds, and A/Professor Kim Dalziel on economic evaluation in clinical trials and economics of child health.

Tianxin is currently in the last stage of completing her PhD at the Nossal Institute for Global Health. Her PhD project investigates the economic impact of Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) on household welfare over time in China. It examines the risk factors associated with the onset of NCDs, the coping mechanisms adopted in response to NCDs, and the economic consequences of delaying NCD treatment on health service utilisation and health expenditures.

Tianxin completed her Bachelor degree in Health Management from Nanjing Medical University and a Master degree in Social Medicine and Health Management from Peking Union Medical College. Before commencing her PhD at the University of Melbourne, she had worked for WHO at Geneva and Ministry of Health in China.
