Post Doctoral Researcher (Associate)

Kyu Lee, PhD, is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health and Public Health Dynamics Lab. Her research focuses on applying mathematical modeling to leverage scarce data in forecasting the future burden of disease and in evaluating the value of innovative health technology in many contexts including low- and middle-income countries. Her past research investigated the temporal trend in heavy drinking behaviors and features of Hepatitis C virus epidemiology observed in China where a rapidly growing economy and healthcare system have accompanied changes in population health. In her current research project at Pitt, she has worked on estimating the impact of COVID-19 non-pharmaceutical interventions on the population immunity and future flu epidemics in the United States. She completed Ph.D. in health policy (Decision science track) at Stanford University and Master’s in health service research at the University of Minnesota.
