Nick Menzies is an Assistant Professor of Global Health in the Department of Global Health and Population. In his applied work he uses mathematical modeling to examine infectious disease control policy in high burden settings, currently focusing on the intersection of HIV and TB epidemics in sub-saharan Africa and other high-burden settings. Other applied work addresses the determinants of site-level delivery costs for major vertical disease control programs.  His methodological interests include Bayesian approaches to calibrating simulation models, value of information analysis, and the use of simulation models for causal inference. Dr. Menzies is a graduate of Harvard's Health Policy PhD program. Prior to joining Harvard he worked with the Global AIDS Program at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, conducting economic evaluation and implementation research on HIV/AIDS control interventions in countries supported by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Dr. Menzies has also served as a consultant to Imperial College, WHO, UNITAID, and ICF International, and before 2003 worked as a hospital dentist in New Zealand.
