I am a Professor of Health Economics and also the Deputy Pro Vice Chancellor of the College of Medicine and Health at the University. I have pioneered research on the economics, especially macro-economics, of AMR for 25 years, and the links with zoonotic disease and broader planetary health. I contributed the economic analysis to the Chief Medical Officer report on AMR in 2013, and the 'O'Neil' Review on AMR in 2014, as well as the WHO Global Strategy on AMR and most recently the Council of Canadian Academies Report on the socio-economic impacts of AMR in Canada.
