Associate Professor of Health Economics
University of Toronto
Prof. Audrey Laporte is an Associate Professor of Health Economics and the Director of the Canadian Centre for Health Economics in the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME), Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto and an Adjunct Senior Scientist at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences. She currently serves as Treasurer on the Board of the International Health Economics Association and on the Scientific Board of the American Health Econometrics Workshop Group.
Prof. Laporte has published extensively in the health economics and health services research literatures. Part of her program of research focusses on applications of theoretical and empirical economic dynamics to health-related questions. Her work has also considered the determinants of heath at the individual level and in particular drivers of health behaviours. Her work in this area aims to explore the empirical implications of dynamic theory not just in terms of informing the equations to be estimated but the implications for the properties of the statistical methods themselves.
