Bryan Tysinger, PhD's Bio
Bryan Tysinger is a research assistant professor at the Sol Price School of Public Policy and director of health policy microsimulation at the USC Schaeffer Center. His research focuses on modeling health and economic outcomes over the life course, with emphasis on identifying policy solutions to improve initial trajectories for the young, course-correct for those at middle-age, and manage the aging process. He works extensively with dynamic microsimulation models, developing and refining the Future Elderly Model (FEM) and Future Adult Model (FAM) and expanding these models globally. As microsimulation director, he oversees the technical development team, assesses the feasibility of new projects, and establishes priorities for development to support the center’s goals. Tysinger earned a BS in applied mathematics, with distinction, from Harvey Mudd College. He holds a Master’s in policy analysis and a PhD in policy analysis from the Pardee RAND Graduate School. His dissertation is “A Life Course Dynamic Microsimulation with an Application to Valuing Diabetes Prevention.” He joined the Schaeffer Center as a quantitative analyst in 2011 and won the Sterling Franklin Outstanding Staff Award in 2017.
