Main Area: Management Systems Engineering
Dr. Hosseinichimeh’s research focuses on developing and applying methods to improve health and healthcare systems. She uses simulation models to help stakeholders improve their understanding and decision making in complex dynamic systems. Applications of her research include modeling of adolescents' and young adults’ drinking and driving behaviors, major depressive disorder, infant mortality, and emergency department. Her methodological contributions include expanding calibration methods for dynamic models and developing techniques for system dynamics group model building. Her research has been funded by NIH, NSF, the Ohio State Department of Health, and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
