The research team at MedMetrics Inc, is directed by Dr Andrew F. Smith. Dr Smith has over 20 years experience in health economics and epidemiological research in the USA, Canada and Europe. He has over 85 publications in a number of peer reviewed journals and scientific meetings. From 2001 to 2007, prior to establishing MedMetrics Inc., Dr Smith was Regional Health Economics Manager for Europe, the Mediterranean and Africa for Alcon Laboratories Ltd (now part of Novartis Inc.) and was responsible for epidemiologic, health economics and outcomes research activities related to market access, market support, pricing and reimbursement issues across a wide range of both ocular pharmaceutical and medical device products.

A graduate of McGill University and the Faculty of Medicine, University of London, England. Dr Smith is currently a Visiting Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at King’s College London, UK. During the academic year 2013-2014, Dr Smith was a visiting Senior Lecturer in Health Economics at the University of Bath in England.

Mr Mascaro uses the expertise developed during his mathematical and physics training in numerical simulations and data analysis to develop population-based statistical and health economic models for MedMetrics Inc. These models are used to determine the costs-effectiveness and outcomes of various healthcare technologies and/or policies. By implementing the health economic models with a concise, easy-to-use interface on a web-based platform, such health economic models are available for use by both private and public agencies to assist in long-term strategic planning, pricing and reimbursement activities in Canada and abroad.

In addition to his role as an applied data scientist and research consultant, Mr Mascaro is currently registered for a PhD in Physics at McGill University in Montreal. Mr Mascaro’s research focusses on the development of experimental techniques (specifically atomic force microscopy) to the study of lithium ion battery materials.

Mr. Mascaro obtained his BSc in Physics and High Technology from the University of Windsor (Windsor, ON) and his MSc from McGill University (Montreal, QC).
