Before joining the department of Health Technology and Services research in 2020, Xavier performed his doctoral research, "Embracing Uncertainty in Health Technology Assessment", at the Maastricht University Medical Centre+. His research interests are the use of simulation models to evaluate the value of new health care technologies and how to improve the transparency of these simulation models. Currently, Xavier is involved in research projects focusing on the early detection of (risk factors for) cardiovascular diseases. Xavier also teaches the basic principles of (early) health economic evaluations in multiple study programs (Bachelor Health Sciences and Master Biomedical Engineering).
