Welcome Dr Yan Meng

We are delighted to have Dr Yan Meng join the Health Economics Unit at the Centre for Health Policy as a Research Fellow. Dr Yan Meng is currently working with Dr Ilias Goranitis on a variety of applied and methodological projects involving Australian Genomics. These include economic evaluations alongside clinical studies in areas such as mitochondrial disorders, developmental disabilities, lung diseases, neonatal intensive care and cancer, contingent valuation and discrete choice modelling methods.

Yan holds a PhD degree in Econometrics and Business Statistics from Monash University, after completing a Bachelor of Commerce and Master of International Economics and Finance at the University of Queensland, Australia. Her research is in the broad area of health economics and applied econometrics. In particular, Yan’s interests are in healthcare performance evaluation, Bayesian panel data analysis and discrete choice modelling. Yan’s previous research contributes to understanding the disparities in length of stay in Australian public and private hospitals, causal relationships between hospital length of stay and unplanned readmission for mental health patients, income elasticity on healthcare expenditure as well as building models that deal with complex large scale datasets.
