Main Area: Management Systems Engineering
My current research focuses on one of the most complex public health problem, major depressive disorder. I use systems approach to understand the complex feedback mechanisms among different drivers of the disorder. Using system dynamics method, I develop simulation models which provide a lab for examining the evolution of the disorder under different conditions and treatments.
