Academic Interests

Dr. Grignon's academic interests are: the economics of ageing as it applies to health care, the economic analysis of equity in health and health care, and international comparisons of health care systems. In particular, the use of tools of applied health economics to study the determinants and welfare consequences of patterns of health care utilization and health behaviours and the application of these tools to the study of equity and fairness in health care systems, the impact of ageing on medical progress, the impact of the business cycle on health, and the determinants of smoking.
