My main research field is health economic modeling with the main focus on sexually transmitted diseases. We are trying to build a agent-based model using the FLAME-framework (www.flame.ac.uk).

Elizabeth Hunter received a BA in Mathematics and Economics at Boston University in 2011. She worked as a health economics researcher at Research Triangle Institute for three years where she worked on a team that developed the risk adjustment models for the US health insurance exchanges. She attended the University of Limerick and received an MSc in Mathematical Modelling in 2015. She completed a PhD at Technological University Dublin. Her PhD research focuses on agent-based simulations for infectious disease epidemiology with the goal of creating an agent-based simulation of Ireland. Elizabeth is currently working on the Precise4Q as a Postdoctoral researcher working on predictive modelling in stroke.
I have been studying (1) applied discrete choice modelling, (2) consumer choices of seafood, (3) international seafood trade, (4) marine habitat and fishery management, (5) China’s international relation, (6) environment and health, and (7) experimental auctions.
I’m starting to learn ABM and hope to apply the method into my research.
Behavioural aspects of environmental problems: Use of evolutionary approaches to investigate how people react to environmental policy.
Climate-economic Models: Understand how economic agents think and decide about climate change and climate protection
