Dr Timothy Powell-Jackson is a health economist based in the Department of Global Health and Development, with over 12 years of experience working as a researcher in low- and middle-income countries. He first developed an interest in the economics of health systems while working at the Ministry of Health, Rwanda. Tim is trained as an economist with expertise in the evaluation of complex health interventions using both experimental and quasi-experimental econometric methods. His core interest is health systems research and the study of innovative demand- and supply-side financial incentive schemes.
Other areas of research interest include: maternal and child health, the economic consequences of ill health, equity in health financing and, more broadly, the interaction between health and development. He is currently leading three projects in India: i) to evaluate a social franchising model (funded by MfM); ii) to understand the market for medical abortion (funded by DfID); and iii) to examine the importance management in the delivery of public health services (funded by Wellcome Trust). His publications include articles in the leading journals for his discipline, including the Lancet, Journal of Health Economics, Health Economics and Journal of Development Economics.
