Biography :

Joshua T. Cohen, Ph.D. is Deputy Director of the Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health and a Research Associate Professor of Medicine at the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies at Tufts Medical Center . His research focuses on the application of decision analytic techniques to public health risk management problems with an emphasis on quantifying the risks, benefits, and costs of public health interventions. This work has included an analysis of the health benefits and net costs of screening programs to identify Alzheimer’s disease patients (in progress), an evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of alternative fuels for urban transit buses taking into account life-cycle technology expenses and pollution-related health impacts, and a cost-effectiveness analysis of a ban on cell phone use while driving.

Dr. Cohen recently served on National Academy of Sciences committees charged with evaluating EPA’s risk assessment of dioxin and with reviewing EPA’s risk assessment practices in general. He is currently serving on a Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Panel that is revising the state mathematics curriculum framework. Dr. Cohen received both his PhD in Decision Sciences and his BA in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University.
