Hugo Turner is a lecturer (equivalent to assistant professor) within the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London. His research focuses on health economic analyses of infectious diseases in low and middle-income countries. Previous to his current position, Turner established a health economics group within the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Vietnam, building in-house capacity to design and perform health economic analyses within the unit. Turner specializes in performing various types of health economic analysis (such as costing of healthcare interventions, cost of illness analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis), as well as developing and using dynamic transmission models. He has worked on projects on a wide range of different infectious diseases; including several of the neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), dengue, Hepatitis C, HPV, and hospital-acquired infections. He also publishes papers that introduce key health economic concepts and methods to those outside of the field. The goal of his research career is to use health economics to help optimise and inform healthcare policy in low and middle-income countries.
