Overview

Dr. Kim's research focuses on the development and application of mathematical modeling methods to evaluate health policy issues related to women's health. She has developed and used models to perform cost-effectiveness analyses of cervical cancer screening strategies in the U.S., Europe, Hong Kong, and less developed regions.

Her methodological interests include integrating different methods of operations research to inform health decision-making in low-resource settings, such as packaging health services at opportune moments and quantifying the impacts of budget and human resource constraints on program effectiveness and feasibility.

She has won awards for her presentations at annual meetings held by the Society for Medical Decision Making and the International Papillomavirus Society.

Dr. Kim holds a Master's degree in Health Policy and Management from the Harvard School of Public Health (2001) and a Ph.D. in Health Policy and Decision Sciences from Harvard University (2005).
