Research Abstract

My research experiences and interests center on the development and utilization of population-based computer simulation models of the natural history of cancer to inform decision making in health policy and improve population health. Specifically, I am interested in the development and application of breast and cervical cancer simulation models to cancer prevention and control. My work is motivated by the fundamental concern for improving both methodology and the information available for decision making at both individual and population levels. My current research agenda includes 1) quantifying outcomes of interest such as the risk of a false positive test result or the reduction in cancer mortality under alternative screening strategies to inform individuals about trade-offs in benefits and risks from participation in those strategies; and 2) evaluation of breast cancer screening policies in the U.S. to guide policy decisions and resource allocation.
