Erin Zwick, PhD

Postdoctoral fellow

Northwestern University

Erin Zwick is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Global Health in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University. Her research interests include infectious disease epidemiology, transmission modeling, and agent-based simulation. She is currently leading a project to optimize malaria interventions in high burden settings using cost-effectiveness modeling methods and agent-based simulation.

Previous projects include building an agent-based simulation of a tuberculosis (TB) epidemic to elucidate population-level effects of complex, individual-level transmission dynamics, application of novel evolutionary modeling methods to infer variation in TB transmission, and statistical analysis of medical records to determine historical changes in length of TB treatment.
