How Laura describes her work

“I am currently developing the Welfare version of SAM-K/LINE®, which focuses on regional labour markets for health professionals, educational balances and the regional demand for individual governmental consumption, including hospital treatments, physician treatments, residential care and education. Primary tasks include economic modelling, data management and analysis, as well as research in regional labour markets and health economics.

New challenges inspire me and I embrace learning and new experiences. I am detail-oriented and structured in the way in which I prefer to work, but I approach problems holistically from the onset and enjoy a dynamic work environment. I like working with numbers and data, and using hard evidence to produce pragmatic, clear and measurable solutions. I have broad academic and professional interests, including regional economics and policy, health economics, as well as resource and environmental economics.”
