Natalie Carvalho is a Research Fellow at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. She holds a joint appointment with the Global Burden of Disease Group and the Centre for Health Policy. Her research aims to incorporate equity and budgetary considerations into cost-effectiveness analyses of interventions to improve maternal and child health in low- and middle-income countries, in particular in relation to childhood vaccines. Natalie’s prior research focused primarily on priority-setting of health interventions in low- and middle-income countries using cost-effectiveness analysis. She has also worked on developing disability weights for injuries and exploring the use of these weights as the basis for a compensation schedule for personal injuries. Natalie received her BSc (Chemistry) from McGill University, MPH (Epidemiology) from Boston University, and PhD in Health Policy (Decision Sciences) from Harvard University.
