Vijeta is joining MGH after finishing his MS in Industrial Engineering with an excellent thesis on control optimization modeling for identifying optimal screening schedules for cancers in low infrastructure settings.
Project from my 200-level GenEd class, 16 students from 8 different majors – engineering, public health, computer science, economics, physics, biology, management, journalism. They did a literature review for identifying quantified correlations between social determinants and behavior, and behavior and HIV. And developed a differential equations simulation model for predicting impact of addressing social determinants. So proud of them!
