My research is aimed at developing new methodological tools to address several important issues in public health. In particular, for men and women undergoing screening for, say prostate cancer or breast cancer respectively, I want to find out what is the optimal frequency for them to undergo screening from a public health point of view so that their long-term health outcomes are optimized. I also want to answer the question of cost-benefit associated with screening. Both these issues are relevant for public health as well as policy development and implementation.
