Biography

Dr Aileen Murphy is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Economics and a graduate of University College Cork (BComm, MEconSc) and University of Glasgow (PhD). 

Dr Murphy's research focuses on two areas. Firstly, her scholarship is in the application of economic evaluation techniques in examining the cost effectiveness and affordability across a variety of innovations for businesses and institutions in the health area (incorporating quantitative economic modeling techniques) as well as Health Technology Assessments systems. To date this had included assessments of medical devices and interventions across therapeutic areas including maternity and mental health. Since completing her PhD, which was also in the area, she have built up a successful multi- disciplinary academic and industry network, with which she has published in high impact journals and successfully secured competitive research funding. 

Dr Murphy currently teaches health economics at postgraduate/ executive education level, principles of economics and undergraduate econometrics.
