Laurie Rachet-Jacquet joined the Health Foundation in March 2021 as an Economic Analyst for the REAL Centre.

Laurie works mainly on the determinants of health and care demand. Related projects include the use of a microsimulation model of future population health and health care utilisation in partnership with the University of Liverpool. She also contributed to the analysis for the REAL Centre’s projections of health and social care funding needs.

Prior to joining the Health Foundation, Laurie was a researcher in health economics at the University of York. Her work, funded by the European Commission’s Marie Curie fellowship, focused on the impact of the organisation of hospital activity on the quality of care.

Laurie has a PhD in Economics from the University of York and a MSc in Economics from Sciences Po Paris.
