David Hutton’s current research is focused on using mathematical models to help inform health policy and medical decision making. He has examined interventions for a wide variety of policies ranging from hepatitis treatment to influenza vaccination to stroke prevention. A common theme is examining both health and economic effects to guide resource allocation decisions. 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 is a member of the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS) and the Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM).
