Dr Eirini-Christina Saloniki PhD, MSc, Diploma, BSc, PGCHE

Research Associate



I am a joint Research Associate in CHSS and PSSRU. I am also a Research Adviser for the NIHR Research Design Service South East.

My research interests lie in the area of applied microecometrics with a particular interest in disability discrimination in the labour market.

My PhD (Economics) thesis explored the reasons behind the lower position of the disabled in the UK labour market with a focus on wages and employment rates. Towards the end of my PhD I worked as a Research Assistant in PSSRU on a project relating to the substitution between health and social care.

Prior to rejoining the University of Kent in July 2016, I spent a few years at the Academic Unit of Health Economics (University of Leeds) mainly involved in NIHR-funded projects with a cost-effectiveness element.

I have taught a number of modules including Introduction to Economics, Applied Health Econometrics, Introduction to Health Economics, Principles of Health Economics and Quantitative Research Methods. I currently teach on the (HEKSS)/NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic Programme and SP583 Clinical Psychology Project.
