Jasper Ubels is a doctoral researcher, and his PhD thesis will focus on the capability approach as an alternative measure of quality of life to improve health outcomes measurement for economic evaluation. Amongst other projects, he is working on studying the efficacy of multi-attribute utility instruments.

Jasper completed his Master of Science in Public Health with a specialization in Health Economics at Umeå University, Sweden. During his Master studies, its work was mainly in two topics. First, he conducted a systematic literature review on the use of cost-effectiveness thresholds and how they are determined. Additionally, Jasper developed a cost-effectiveness analysis on the rheumatic heart disease echocardiographic screening in Brazil.
