My research interests lie in the application of Operations Research methodologies and statistical tools to problems arising in health care systems and public policy decision-making. My specific research focus is on the development of optimal risk-based screening policies and effective algorithms for public health screening. Applications include donated blood screening, population-level screening for sexually-transmitted diseases, and newborn screening for genetic mutations.
