David Paltiel, PH.D, M.B.A.
Professor, Health Policy and Management
Yale School of Public Health
Dr. Paltiel is an expert in the field of operations research and disease simulation modeling. He conducts cost-effectiveness analyses on a variety of medical technologies and public health activities. His current research focuses on model-based evaluation of HIV/AIDS testing, prevention, treatment, and care in vulnerable and underserved populations in the United States and abroad. He has previously served on four expert panels convened by the Institute of Medicine under mandates from the United States Congress and on the editorial boards of both Medical Decision Making and Value in Health. He is a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis.
As a model-based decision analyst, Dr. Paltiel occupies a unique intellectual niche at Yale. His expertise in both the theory of choice under uncertainty and its practical adaptation to policy-relevant applications provides substantial opportunity for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral trainees interested in promoting a more reasoned approach to clinical practice and priority setting in health and medicine.
