Position
Researcher, Health Policy

Veronika joined The King's Fund after working as a freelance policy researcher and analyst for a variety of organisations, including Marie Curie Cancer Care, Fair Pensions and the Mix Market. She is currently investigating models of integrated care for people with complex needs and also has a strong research interest in health economics, specifically the tensions arising between co-operative and competitive approaches to health care delivery.

Before focusing on health policy, Veronika has worked extensively on access to finance policies for the poor, researching banking and financial regulation as well as microfinance. During her time at the new economics foundation, she contributed to the discussion on the funding and use of social enterprises in the delivery of public services and pro-poor interventions.

She holds an MSc in development management from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a BA (Hons) in urban geography from the Flinders University in Australia.
