Esra holds a bachelor degree in Health Policy and Management and a master degree in Health Economics, both obtained from Erasmus University. During her bachelor, she won a thesis award for her research on the application of multi criteria decision analysis in the Dutch reimbursement system.

For her master thesis, she developed a cost-effectiveness model for atezolizumab in non-small cell lung cancer patients in the Netherlands. Esra has worked as a researcher at the Erasmus School of Health Policy and Management, where she conducted a study about the complexity of care between academic, top-clinical and general hospitals.
