Priscille Koutouan

Advisor: Maria Mayorga

Priscille Koutouan is a Ph.D. student at NC State’s Edward P. Fitts Department of ISE focusing on Health Systems Engineering.

Research Interests

Priscille’s research interests are in applying deterministic and stochastic models along with simulation to solve healthcare and public health-related problems. Applications of her research have been in supporting health policy decision-makers in their efforts to decrease colorectal cancer (CRC) burden among marginalized populations. Her current CRC research involves

  1. testing the impact of modeling assumptions of the screening behavior of patients on their long-term health outcomes,
  2. finding best ways to model screening interventions that took place and project the results over the long run.

Additionally, she is interested in constructing a framework to efficiently calibrate stochastic disease models and systematically choosing between plausible models resulting from model calibration.
