Dr. Claire de Oliveira is an Independent Scientist and Health Economist in the Social and Epidemiological Research (SER) Department and an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME) at the University of Toronto. Dr. de Oliveira is also a collaborator at the Toronto Health Economics Technology Assessment Collaborative (THETA) and an associate member of the Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control (ARCC).

Areas of Research
Dr. Oliveira provides economic expertise on various SER projects, and pursues her own projects. Her research explores utilization and expenditures of mental health services among cancer patients to understand the burden of care for this population, and its impact on the health care system. Her work also focuses on understanding how early life conditions (household income, parental mental health and addictions) and access to mental health care affect child mental health and later life outcomes (health, socioeconomic status, suicide) and the resulting policy implications.
