Dr. Kyu Eun Lee, PhD will be joining The CHOICE Institute and the Department of Pharmacy in January as The CHOICE Institute Endowed Assistant Professor of Health Decision Sciences. Dr. Lee obtained a PhD in Health Policy (Decision Science track) at Stanford University in 2020 and a Master of Science in Health Services Research at the University of Minnesota in 2014. Dr. Lee joins us most recently from the University of Pittsburgh, Public Health Dynamics Lab, where she completed a postdoctoral research fellowship.
Dr. Lee’s research focuses on using simulation models of diseases and policies to forecast the future burden on patients and populations and evaluates current and potential interventions preventing and treating infectious diseases and alcohol drinking disorders. She is also interested in decision science and disease modeling methods to improve model validity and computational efficiency. Her most recent work was on estimating the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions for COVID-19 on the future influenza seasons and population immunity in the United States. She is also a fellowship recipient in Medical Decision Making from the Society of Medical Decision Making. Dr. Lee will bolster the strong training and research commitment in CHOICE in Health Decision Sciences, and bring new substantive and methodological expertise in these areas for our faculty and students.
We look forward to welcoming Dr. Lee, along with our other new faculty member, Dr. Jing Li, in January 2023!
