Dr Khurshid Alam is a Lecturer in Health Economics at the School of Population & Global Health, The University of Western Australia since December 2017. Prior to this appointment he was a Health Economist at Murdoch Children's Research Institute and a Research Fellow at Monash University in Melbourne. In the past he led multiple community health research projects at the Health Systems & Economics Unit of the International Centre for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b), BBC World Service Trust, BRAC, Population Council, and CARE International in Bangladesh.

Currently, Dr Alam is leading two postgraduate courses 1) PUBH5752: Health Systems & Economics, and 2) PUBH5801: Economic Evaluation of Health Care. His key research focuses on i) economic evaluations (cost-minimization, cost-effectiveness, cost-utility, and cost-benefit analysis) to examine efficiencies of different interventions in health systems, ii) household level economic impacts of ill health and financial risk protections, iii) distribution (equity) of health financing and its demand-side and supply-side models, and iv) experimental and quasi-experimental impact evaluation of health interventions.

Dr Alam published 61 peer-reviewed articles in leading international journals. He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for the Cost Effectiveness and Resource Allocation, a Bio-Med Central Journal.

Dr Alam has advised a number of research students (PhD, Fulbright Intern) and is currently looking for PhD students in health financing as a principal adviser.
