Dr. Hyder's research focuses on understanding the role of multiple determinants of human health (environment, social, biology) operating at multiple levels (individual, neighborhood, regional). He uses mathematical and computational approaches (e.g. systems science methods, predictive analytics) to bring together theory, data and methods from multiple disciplines.
