Biography

Dr Duncan Mortimer is an Associate Professor (Research) and Head of Teaching at Monash University's Centre for Health Economics (CHE). He holds academic qualifications in economics and psychology from the University of Adelaide and in economics and health economics from Monash University. His current research interests include the economics of charitable giving, the role of incentives in promoting pro-social behaviours, and the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of behavioural economics strategies in promoting healthy lifestyle.



Prior to his appointment to the Monash Centre for Health Economics (CHE), Duncan held positions as research associate in health economics at the University of East Anglia, and senior research fellow in health economics at the Monash Institute for Health Services Research.

Duncan brings to CHE more than ten years of experience conducting applied health economics research and economic evaluation. His past research work includes development of a micro-economic model of drug-resistant malaria for the World Health Organization; trial-based and modelled economic evaluations alongside the IMPLEMENT, ALIGN, IRIS and SHiQ trials; preparation of commentaries on new applications to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee; and econometric modelling of pricing in the market for GP services. Findings from Duncan's work have been cited in Hansard and in policy documents such as the recent NHHRC report: A Healthier Future for All Australians. Findings from Duncan's research (see Mortimer and Kelly, 2006) have influenced health policy internationally.

In addition to his diverse programme of research and a teaching commitment that includes oversight of seven units, two award courses, over 10 sessional teaching staff and approximately 600 students per year; Duncan is currently a member of the Principal Health Care Committee of the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
