Health economics, health services research, health policy and causal inference.
Dr. Strumpf’s research in health economics focuses on evaluating the impacts of health and social policies on the health and well being of individuals and populations, on inequalities across groups, and on the performance of the health care system. She uses administrative health data, large-scale surveys, and methods for causal inference - principally quasi-experimental designs - to estimate the effects of interventions and reforms in real-world settings. Dr. Strumpf and her research team actively collaborate with decision makers to generate relevant, usable knowledge to improve population health and health care system performance. She has presented her work to provincial ministries of health and of finance in Canada as well as to policymakers in France and the United States.
