Thuy Le, PhD
- Assistant Research Scientist, Health Management and Policy
Dr. Le is interested in mathematical modeling for cancer and tobacco research, and machine learning applications in tobacco regulatory science. Dr. Le has developed mathematical models to evaluate the benefits and harms of breast cancer mammography and predict the number of white blood cells during acute lymphoblastic maintenance therapy. Dr. Le has recently focused on employing mathematical models to quantify the burden of menthol cigarettes on public health and estimate the smoking cessation rate. In addition, Dr. Le is working on applying machine learning techniques to predict and understand smoking behaviors.
