Research Interests

I am primarily interest in simulation modeling that can directly impact policy. I am interested in modeling both chronic diseases in developed countries, as well as infectious diseases in developing countries. Lastly, I am interested in cost-effectiveness of specific interventions, particularly if related to health insurance systems.


I am currently a Coterminal student in Biomedical Informatics under the School of Medicine, and completed my B.S. in Computer Science concentrating in Biocomputation, also at Stanford. I am working with Professor Jay Bhattacharya on Future Elderly Models for East Asian countries, and with Professor Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert on simulation modeling of diseases in developing countries.
