Personal profile



Bonny is a Senior Research Fellow at MUCHE. Prior to joining MUCHE she was a Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Economics, Research and Evaluation at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) for six years. She has also worked at AstraZeneca in the United Kingdom as a senior health economist, Access Economics in Canberra as a senior economist, and the Social Policy Evaluation and Research Centre at the Australian National University as an Assistant researcher.


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 has been involved in over 40 evaluations of submissions to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) between 2009 and 2020, 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. 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 -). In recognition of her expertise in reviewing economic evaluations, she was an invited member of the international Delphi panel which developed the AdViSHE tool – a tool that can be used to assess the validation status of health economic decision models.

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 has excellent skills in presenting complex economic research in ways that captivates an audience’s attention and is understandable. She teaches health economics as of the Masters of Public Health and regularly teaches short courses on economic evaluation.  In 2014 she was invited by the Australian Chapter of the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) to present at the workshop ‘Risky Business: Decision Making in Healthcare with Economic Uncertainty’, and in 2018 she was invited to present and participate in a panel at the workshop on ‘PBAC submissions’.

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.
