Arthur CheungMSc in International Health & Tropical Medicine

I’m a medical doctor, management consultant, and expectant father.

I have broad interests in global health and sustainable development, but particularly the use of strategic analysis and decision sciences in examining market failures. I recently completed an MPP in economic development at the Harvard Kennedy School, where I was a Frank Knox Memorial Fellow and a Teaching Assistant in Machine Learning & Big Data Analytics. At Oxford, I am reading for the MSc in International Health & Tropical Medicine, and hope to explore the mathematical modelling and management of infectious disease outbreaks.

Prior to my current period of educational leave, I was a manager in McKinsey & Company’s Public Sector Practice. My work as a management consultant focused on national health reforms (regulation, financing, systems design), complemented by experience spanning hospital operational reconfiguration, organisational design, biotech R&D strategy, pharma M&A, and the use of machine learning to inform public policy development.

I also have experience as a Policy Fellow at the Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet (Australia), a Resident Medical Officer at the Royal Darwin Hospital, and from internships at Gavi Vaccine Investment Strategy) and the World Health Organization (Sustainable Development Goals).

I was born in Hong Kong, grew up in New Zealand, and am mainly based in Australia.
