Welcome to the webpage of the Department of Empirical Health Economics
In our research, we work on inequalities in health and healthcare with the aim to create equal opportunities in health and to design a fair and efficient healthcare system for everyone.
We employ quantitative techniques from econometrics and epidemiology to analyze inequalities in health and healthcare and to evaluate complex (health) policy interventions.
