Mayur Mahesh Desai, Ph.D., MPH

Associate Professor of Epidemiology
I teach at the School of Public Health and direct our one-year Advanced Professional MPH Program. My research interests are wide-ranging and include mental health, aging, cardiovascular disease, and global health. I received both my MPH in health policy and my PhD in epidemiology from Yale. Earlier in my career, I served as an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Officer at CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. I welcome the opportunity to mentor students interested in exploring the exciting and rewarding field of public health!
