Dr. Earnshaw’s research focus is applying decision-analysis techniques to industry-related issues and health care problems. Her areas of specialization include mathematical programming (constrained optimization), network optimization, Markov processes, simulation, and other state transition modeling. She has developed innovative mathematical models using these methods to determine pricing strategy, predict clinical outcomes, and allocate resources. In addition, she continues her support for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and diagnostic and medical device industry by developing budget-impact and cost-effectiveness models for their health technologies. Therapeutic areas include cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory disease, transplantation, infectious disease, osteoporosis, vaccines, and oncology. She is a member of the ISPOR and the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences. She has presented her work at professional conferences and has published in several peer-reviewed journals.
