Joseph Dieleman, PhD, is Associate Professor in the Department of Health Metric Sciences at the University of Washington and is faculty lead of the Resource Tracking team at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. This work focuses on tracking development assistance for health, healthcare spending by disease, and government health spending. These projects are split between global research, seeking to understand financial flows for health in a wide variety of contexts, and domestic research, seeking to describe how healthcare is purchased in the US.

Dr. Dieleman studied at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, earning his undergraduate degree in Economics, and at the University of Washington, where he received his PhD in Economics. He has also spent three years living and working in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
