Paola Cocco


I am a Postgraduate Researcher in health economics. My PhD project focuses on Target Product Profiles (TPPs) in the field of medical tests, antimicrobial resistance, cost-effectiveness analysis and decision-analytic modelling.

In October 2018 I graduated from the European Master in Health Economics and Management (Eu-HEM), specialization track in Economic Evaluation in Healthcare. As a part of the Master program, I have studied at Erasmus University Rotterdam and University of Oslo. 

Research interests

I am interested in health economics in broader terms and more specifically in the evaluation of medical tests, cost-effectiveness analysis, decision-analytic modelling and heterogeneity analysis.
