    Current Role at Stanford My current duties as a Research Scientist at Stanford University include developing cost-effectiveness models to estimate clinical outcomes and program costs to inform health policy. Recently, I was commissioned by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine to model the potential impact of improving chronic hepatitis B patient care and treatment in the United States. The study published by the National Academies formed the basis of a national strategy which concluded that eliminating the public health problem of CHB in the US by 2030 is feasible through strategies including linkage to care for monitoring and treatment to reduce disease complications. Subsequently, I was invited by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to give a talk on the national hepatitis B model at the viral hepatitis summit in Atlanta.
