Eugenio Zucchelli supervises 8 postgraduate research students. Some of the students have produced research profiles, these are listed below:
My main research expertise is in applied microeconometrics and health economics. My current research interests encompass the economics of addiction and risky health-behaviours; health and labour supply; econometric methods for the evaluation of public health interventions; structural econometric modelling; and the relationships between early life conditions, education and health. My work involves the development and application of econometric methods on large and complex datasets.
Health Economics, Applied Microeconometrics
Current research projects include:
- Life-cycle models of addiction, health and smoking with Andrew M Jones (York), Audrey Laporte (Toronto) and Nigel Rice (York)
- Early life conditions and human capital formation with Davide Dragone (Bologna) and Pedro Ross Dias (Sussex)
- Health, health-behaviours and education among young pupils with Giuseppe Migali (Lancaster)
- The impact of public smoking bans on subjective well-being with Miaoqing Yang (Lancaster)
- Health status and risk attitudes with Bernard van den Berg (York)
- Health and labour transitions among older workers with Xueyan Zhao (Monash) and Mark Harris (Curtin)
- Well-being, health and single parents‘ labour supply with Alan Duncan (Curtin), Anthony Harris (Monash), Mark Harris (Curtin)
- Modelling the health care costs of diabetes: evidence from longitudinal data with Joan Gil (Barcelona)
- The effects of religion on consumption choices with Reggiani (Manchester) and Rossini (Bologna)
My research interests focus on the development and application of econometric methods to the analysis of the economics of health and health care with particular interests on panel (longitudinal) data econometrics. The ultimate aim of my research is to inform health care policy through sound empirical evidence.
My research is conducted within the recently formed Health Economics At Lancaster (HEAL) reserch group, a collaboration between the Division of Health Research (DHR) and the Department of Economics at Lancaster University.
Current research projects and national and international collaborations are mainly in the areas of the economics of addiction and health-behaviours; the impact of ill-health, health shocks and well-being on labour supply of specific population sub-groups (older individuals and single parents); the relationships between health, well-being and risk attitudes; the application of ex-post and ex-ante methods for policy evaluation including quasi-experimental methods and structural modelling; and the relationships between early life conditions, health and human capital along the life-cycle. More recently, I have also developed an interest in some aspects of the economics of religion, especially on the impact of religion and cultural beliefs on consumption choices.

Health Economics and Policy (Economics Department)
I have joined Lancaster University as a Lecturer in Health Economics in January 2013. I am currently based within the Health Economics At Lancaster (HEAL) research group. Between 2009-2012 I have been Research Fellow in the Health, Econometrics and Data Group (HEDG), Centre for Health Economics, University of York. Between 2006 and 2008, I have been Visiting Scholar at Monash University (Centre for Health Economics and Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics). I hold a PhD in Economics and an MSc in Public Economics both awarded by the University of York.
