Nicholas Graves is Professor of Health Economics at Institute of Biomedical and Health Innovation, School of Public Health, Queensland University of Technology Queensland Health, Australia.
Nicholas Graves is currently the Academic Director for The Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation (AusHSI) and the Academic Director for the Centre of Research Excellence in Reducing Healthcare Associated Infections (CRE-RHAI), Queensland University of Technology / Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation.
His applied research brings economics to the study of health-care. He has a programme of research that uses Bayesian methods for the synthesis of diverse sources of data that are subsequently used to inform parameters in decision models that address questions about the value of competing investments in health care sector alternatives. He supervises PhD students, teaches economics to post-graduate students and has made research contributions of international significance publishing in Nature, BMJ, AIDS, Health Economics, Lancet Infectious Diseases, The Journal of Infectious Diseases and Emerging Infectious Diseases.
