Pamela Coxson, PhD

Mathematician

Pamela Coxson, PhD is a mathematician with the Division of General and Internal Medicine and member of the CVP Cardiovascular Disease Modelling Group. She is responsible for design and maintenance of the CHD Policy Model, implementation of analyses using the Model, and interpretation of Model data. Current projects include adaptation of the Model to assess the CHD burden and benefits of treatment in vulnerable populations. Dr. Coxson received her Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Southern California.
