CoCo: Saeideh Mirghorbani (SOM) Using Stochastic Decision Making Processes to Improve Alzheimer's Disease Screening

Day Wednesday, November 13
Time 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Where EB-T1

Saeideh Mirghorbani, assistant professor of supply chain management in the School of Management at Binghamton University, will speak on "Using Stochastic Decision Making Processes to Improve Alzheimer's Disease Screening." Family history, genetics, Down syndrome, head injury, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and diabetes are some of the factors that place individuals at a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD). To manage this risk and its complications, persons more susceptible to AD should be regularly screened. To determine an optimal screening plan, we develop a finite horizon, partially observable Markov decision process model for individuals transitioning through different stages of AD. The model aims to maximize the Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALY) for individuals. For more information, contact Hiroki Sayama at sayama@binghamton.edu. http://coco.binghamton.edu/
