David Hutton holds a PhD from Stanford's department of Management Science and Engineering with a focus on health policy modeling. Prior to joining Stanford's PhD program, David worked for a consulting company that focused on mathematical modeling and for several silicon valley software companies. David's current research is focused on health policy and medical decision making, in particular the use of mathematical models to assist with the allocation of resources for health. His research and influence on national and international hepatitis B policy earned him the first place prize in the "Doing Good with Good OR student paper competition" from the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science. He has served as a consultant, advisor, and/or collaborator with the World Health Organization, the US Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Cost-effectiveness analysis:
I am interested in evaluating the cost-effectiveness of new public health policies and the use of new drugs and devices. I am interested in interventions with uncertain or complex outcomes. Specifically, I have conducted cost-effectiveness analyses of infectious disease interventions, chronic disease interventions, and analyses of new drugs and devices.
