Bonny’s expertise is in pharmaceutical policy in Australia, researching economic evaluation of healthcare interventions and technologies methodology, and analysing linked administrative data to inform economic evaluations. She currently co-leads a team of researchers conducting evaluations of submissions to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) and researching economic evaluation methodology. She has been involved in over 50 evaluations of submissions to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) since 2009, and has also conducted evaluations of submissions to the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) and the National Diabetes Subsidy Scheme (NDSS). For this work she was awarded the UTS Research Excellence Through Partnership award in 2013. 

To date, she has been the recipient of career research funding of over $22.0 million spread over 16 grants and has 36 peer-reviewed journal articles.

She was a member of the Ezetimibe Review Reference Group for the Australian Government Department of Health (2016-2017), and is currently a member of the NSW Cancer Council’s Pathways Scientific Advisory Committee on Colorectal Cancer and Lynch Syndrome (2018 -) and the Australian Clinical Trials Alliance Health Economics Alongside Trials Special Interest Group (ACTA HEAT SIG).

Her PhD was on “Pharmaceutical Policy in Australia: Developing Methods to Manage Uncertainty in Health Technology Assessment”, for which she received the UTS Chancellor’s List award in 2016.

Bonny was also an executive member of the Australian Health Economics Society (AHES) committee (2012-2016). In 2015-2016 she was acting secretary and was involved with organising the 2015 AHES conference and co-organising the 2017 AHES conference in Sydney. In 2013 and 2014, Bonny co-conceived and co-organised the first and second Australian Health Economics Doctoral workshop. The feedback from participants was very positive in the first two years that the workshop is now a permanent fixture of the annual Australian Health Economics Society conference.

Bonny has excellent skills in presenting complex economic research in ways that captivates an audience’s attention and is understandable. She teaches health economics as part of the Masters of Public Health (2017-) and regularly teaches short courses on economic evaluation.
