Radboud Duintjer Tebbens received his Masterís and Doctoral degrees in Applied Mathematics at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands in 2002 and 2005, respectively. He conducted his research on both degrees with the Kids Risk Project. His research integrates applied mathematics and public health and focuses on the area of decision analysis for infectious disease risk management, including mathematical modeling of infectious disease transmission and uncertainty and sensitivity analysis methods for such dynamic models. He worked on his Masterís thesis with Professor Kimberly Thompson as a visiting scholar at the Harvard School of Public Health on a retrospective cost-effectiveness analysis of historic polio vaccination programs in the United States. For his doctoral research and as a post-doctoral research associate, he and Professor Thompson built an extensive dynamic decision analytic model to evaluate the risks, costs, and benefits of global polio risk management strategies after the eradication of wild polioviruses, in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization that led to numerous publications. After leaving Harvard, he joined the faculty at Delft University of Technology. In July 2010, he returned to Boston to become Vice President of Kid Risk, Inc.
