    Research Statement


    Mark McGovern is a Lecturer in Economics at Queen’s Management School, Queen’s University Belfast, and the UKCRC Centre of Excellence for Public Health (Northern Ireland). Prior to joining Queen’s in September 2015, he was a Program on the Global Demography of Aging Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University. He received his PhD in economics from University College Dublin in 2013. His main research interests are in health, development, and labour economics, including a variety of topics in ageing, HIV, and maternal/child health.


    His current projects include estimating the long run economic effects of childhood malnutrition (in collaboration with UNICEF), the macroeconomic burden of non-communicable disease (in collaboration with the Pan-American Health Organization and Harvard University), and methods for dealing with non-ignorable missing data in observational studies and randomised control trials.
