Natalia Kunst

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute. My research addresses weighting tradeoffs among costs, benefits, and risks in cancer prevention and treatment policies, and designing and prioritizing clinical research when resources are limited. The methods I use to answer these research questions include disease simulation modeling, cost-effectiveness analysis, and a value of information (VOI) analysis. In my PhD work, I formalized an iterative decision-making framework in health and medicine that propagated the principles of evidence-based medicine and highlighted the importance of iteration in the process of medical decision making. I am a member of the Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) and a founding member of the Collaborative Network for Value of Information (ConVOI). I hold a PhD in Health Policy with a concentration in Decision Sciences from the University of Oslo, Norway, and was a Postgraduate Research Fellow/Visiting PhD Candidate at Yale University Schools of Medicine and Public Health.
