My research focuses primarily on the prescriptive analysis of clinical oncology problems, using the tools of clinical decision analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis. In addition, I have participated in descriptive studies seeking to explain decision-making behavior; these have included utility assessment (i.e., elicitation of preferences for health outcomes). I have also advanced the science of the methods of medical decision making, particularly in the areas of diagnostic testing and cost-effectiveness analysis, through the study of applied clinical problems.
A tutorial in my laboratory could provide experience in clinical decision making, cost-effectiveness analysis, and mathematical modeling.
