Khowaja recently joined Brock University in St. Catharines as an Assistant Professor (Health Economics). He has several years of professional experience in advanced health economics and simulation modelling. He has authored 33 publications (17 as first author, 16 as co-author). During his doctoral studies, Dr. Khowaja received several prestigious awards, including the CIHR Vanier doctoral award (2015) and the Warren George Povey Award in Public Health (2016). His research interests include the economic impact of quality improvement initiatives in acute care facilities and long-term care homes, the cost-effectiveness of community-based interventions for maternal and newborn health, cost-efficacy of newborn screening, vaccine effectiveness, and patient-oriented research for measuring societal costs. He completed a Health System Impact Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2020 (BC Patient Safety and Quality Council) and obtained his PhD in Health Economics from the University of British Columbia in 2018.
