Dr. Pandya loves teaching introductory health decision science and conducting research built on these methods. His areas of interest are: 1) applied decision science studies evaluating cardiovascular disease policies; 2) connecting cost-effectiveness analysis with broader value-based health policies being implemented or piloted in U.S. health reform; and 3) methodological topics within disease simulation modeling (calibration, validation, value of information). His research has been covered in The New York Times, National Public Radio, NBC Nightly News, and other media outlets.
Before joining HPM, Dr. Pandya served as Assistant Professor of Healthcare Policy and Research with a secondary appointment in the Department of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College from 2012-2014. He graduated from the Harvard PhD Program in Health Policy in 2012, and holds an MPH from Yale University in Health Policy and Administration and a BS from Cornell University in Nutritional Sciences. Prior to entering the PhD program, he worked for two years at a health economics/outcomes research consulting firm.
He received the "Outstanding Paper by a Young Investigator Award" from the Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM) in 2016, and was one of three recipients of the "Teaching Citation Award" from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in 2017. He received a "Centre for Health Economics Research Fellowship Award" from the University of York in 2018 (visitation in 2019). He was elected as an SMDM trustee in 2019. Dr. Pandya has received grant funding as principal investigator from the National Institutes of Health (R01NS104143, 2018-2023) and the American Heart Association (14CRP18730014, 2014-2015).
