Carlos is now focused on contributing to a broad range of applied health research projects at NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) West in collaborations between academia, the NHS and other partners. A recent focus of his work is related to bringing evidence into practice and behaviour change interventions. He is also part of the Health Economics Bristol (HEB) at Bristol Medical School.
Before joining ARC, Carlos completed my PhD (finished in 2020) in behavioural economics and experimental psychology. Particularly, he studied the impact of labelling interventions in tobacco and alcohol products.
He use a wide range of methodologies including experimental techniques, cost-effectiveness analysis, decision analysis models or qualitative analyses in multidisciplinary fields. Always orientated in promoting common good: consumerism, public health interventions, harm reduction, mental health, and behaviour change in general.
Carlos is also interested in public and policy engagement and consider it as an important aspect of his work. He also have some experience in teaching and supervising students. He teaches health economics on the Master course in Public Health and NIHR ARC West training course on Health Economics.
