Sabina Alistar: Mathematics and medicine


Sabina earned her PhD from Stanford University, in the department of Management Science and Engineering. In her research, Sabina develops and applies operations research tools for shaping Health care policies, with emphasis on optimal resource allocation for controlling infectious diseases such as AIDS.

She has collaborated with the United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS to develop a practical mathematical model that can be used by decision makers to allocate resources among HIV control programs. Her achievements have been acknowledged with the title „Romanian student of 2011 in North America”, postgraduate level.

On the TEDxBucharest stage, Sabina will lead an insightful conversation on how mathematical models can inform health policy, and the exciting insights we can gain from them, to improve our health policies and the lives of millions of people.
