The objective that guides Dr. Paltiel's scholarly activities is to promote a reasoned approach to choices under uncertainty and resource scarcity in health and medicine. Trained in the field of Operations Research, Dr. Paltiel designs and implements model-based cost-effectiveness analyses of medical technologies and public health interventions. His published research, including more than 100 peer-reviewed papers, spans both methods development and applications to a wide range of disease areas and clinical specialties. He has a special interest and expertise in HIV/AIDS and has published broadly on the cost-effectiveness of testing, prevention, treatment, and care, both in the United States and around the world.
Among the many talented modelers at Yale, Dr. Paltiel's unique contribution lies in bringing a decision-analytic and cost-effectiveness overlay to public health policy and resource allocation. His expertise in both the theory of choice under uncertainty and its practical adaptation to policy-relevant applications provides substantial opportunity to mentor colleagues interested in promoting a more reasoned approach to clinical practice and priority setting in health and medicine.
