Professor Nicholas Graves
Professor Graves’s major focus is on showing how health services can be improved at low cost, or even improved with cost savings. His specialist areas of knowledge include health economics; health services research; decision making; cost-effectiveness; prevalence of high-value and low-value care and its effects on patients; healthcare associated infection; health behaviour change interventions; screening for infectious and chronic disease; and how research funding is allocated.
Professor Graves has received more than $20M in research funding since 2004, mostly from international and national competitive schemes. He has made research contributions of international significance, publishing over 100 articles in top-ranking peer reviewed journals such as Nature, JAMA, BMJ, AIDS, Health Economics, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Lancet Infectious Diseases, The Journal of Infectious Diseases and Emerging Infectious Diseases.
He gained his PhD in Health Economics from the University of London, spent 10 years as Lecturer and Research Fellow with the Health Services Research.
