About me

Michela is a health and care economist within CPEC and is a NIHR SSCR Leadership Fellow. Her research interests are centered around two main areas:

Economic evaluation for adult social care, including hard-to-reach populations with complex needs

In her work related to multiple exclusion homelessness research, Michela has led the economic evaluation for several projects. Currently, she is co-leading in collaboration with Michelle Cornes, Salford and Kings College London, the Department of Health and Social Care funded evaluation of national out-of-hospital care models for people with experience of homelessness. She is also leading the economic analysis for the NIHR-funded Housing Model Evaluation (HOME) study, which focuses on improvements in health associated with housing-led systems for PEHs.

As the coordinator of the ESSENCE online compendium of economic evidence in social care, she is contributing to the development and publication of an online resource that provides valuable evidence for social care interventions. This resource is funded by NIHR School for Social Care Research and serves as a valuable reference for policymakers, researchers, and practitioners in the field.

Michela is also leading two LSE Innovation-funded projects looking at the development of integrated management platforms to promote person-centered care with applications in health and care.

Development and application of choice modelling and contingent valuation to social care

Michela is interested in the application of choice modelling approach to measure service user preferences and inform policy and practice decision-making across health and care settings. She is currently applying it to understanding social care for people experiencing homelessness, older people with high care needs, and carers of people with dementia. She is also applying contingent valuation to evaluate new government social care charging reforms.

Michela has a PhD in Health Economics and Primary Care and an MSc in Public Health and Health Services Research from the University of Aberdeen, as well as an MSc in Pharmacoeconomics and a Professional Doctorate Degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from the University of Milan, Italy.
