Research interests

My doctoral research is comprised of 2 parts:

  1. Economic Evaluation - to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of multiple control strategies against dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever in resource-poor settings using the example of Thailand".
  2. Optimal Strategies in Disease Control - cost-effectiveness does not directly address the problem that decision-makers are increasingly constrained by a fixed-budget and may not be able to fund new more expensive interventions, even if they have been shown to represent good value for money. In lay terms, cost-effectiveness analysis inform us what we should do but not what we can do. As the term 'health' reflects very different aspects of well-being, quite different objectives can be derived for the allocation of health care resources. Therefore, my second research question focuses on Optimal Control to examine the problem of allocating scarce health care resources subject to constraints.
