Jing's research interests include:
- economic evaluations alongside clinical trials
- decision analytical modelling, preference elicitation methods
- the understanding of socioeconomic inequalities in health and wellbeing/happiness through the application of statistical and econometric techniques using large data sets.
Jing has a special research interest in the application of health economics in oral health research, in particular, in understanding socioeconomic inequalities in oral health, how oral health inequalities impact on individuals over the life-course, and the implications for policy and organisation of oral health services.
Jing is interested in supervising prospective MSc, PhD students wishing to conduct research in the areas of health inequalities, dental health economics, and preference elicitation methods.
