Teaching

Lecturer

I received the Howard Raiffa Teaching Grant to develop decision theory lectures for non-technical audiences. These lectures cover risk postures and utility functions, the value of a statistical life, and the value of information with theory content, clinical examples, and class activities. I also created a ShinyApp to help students interactively learn about the Beta-Binomial Conjugacy (https://klofgren.shinyapps.io/bayesian_updating/).

For the past four years, I have taught these lecturers as a part of Asst. Prof. Ankur Pandya's course at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health titled Decision Analysis for Health and Medical Practice. I have also offered the content as a single half-day short course at the Society for Medical Decision Making 2016 and 2017 meetings.
