Research/Areas of Interest: Our research focuses on the application of decision analytic techniques to public health risk management problems with an emphasis on quantifying the risks, benefits, and costs of public health interventions. This work has included an analysis of the health benefits and net costs of screening programs to identify Alzheimer's disease patients (in progress), an evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of alternative fuels for urban transit buses taking into account life-cycle technology expenses and pollution-related health impacts, and a cost-effectiveness analysis of a ban on cell phone use while driving.
