CHDS faculty Nicolas Menzies has been promoted to associate professor of global health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Menzies’s research uses quantitative techniques, including decision analysis, mathematical modeling, and Bayesian evidence synthesis to identify strategies to reduce the burden of TB, HIV, and COVID-19. These strategies are ultimately used to design cost-effective policies and programs to reduce the three greatest causes of infectious disease deaths globally. His global research focuses primarily on Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the U.S.
Menzies teaches two courses at the Harvard Chan School, RDS 285: Decision Analysis Methods in Public Health and Medicine, and GHP 506: Measuring Population Health, and leads a master’s thesis course offered as a requirement of the SM2 program. Outside the classroom, he devotes considerable time to students through mentoring and advising, reviewing admissions applications, hosting student networking events, and arranging internship plans. His dedication to students was recognized when he received the 2020 Harvard Chan Mentoring Award. In addition to serving as a core faculty member at CHDS, Menzies is a member of the University’s Standing Committee on Higher Degrees in Health Policy.
