Cameron Cook, PhD, is a Senior Research Health Economist at RTI-HS. His relevant experience comprises decision-analytic modeling, including Markov models and simulation modeling. He has developed mathematical models including compartmental dynamic transmission models for infectious diseases and linear programs in various software packages (MATLAB, R, Excel, etc.). He has extensive experience in designing and conducting literature review as well as presenting research orally and in manuscripts.
Dr. Cook’s academic training is grounded in applied mathematics, specifically in optimization and differential equation modeling. His research, while all rooted in similar mathematics, varies greatly and includes optimizing runner models, data-driven modeling to predict viral load of La Crosse virus in a mosquito population, predicting tsunami landfall time from q-advanced waves through numerical approximation schemes, and machine learning modeling to determine optimal forklift paths in a warehouse.
Dr. Cook is a member of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. His research has been presented at various professional conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals, including PLOS ONE.
