Jinyi Zhu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Policy. Her research focuses on applications and methods to inform decision-making for resource allocation in public health and health care. Specifically, her research falls into three main areas: 1) resource prioritization for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, 2) applied model-based cost-effectiveness analysis in other clinical areas including TB and HIV, and 3) methodological advances in disease simulation modeling (e.g., equity-informative cost-effectiveness analysis, model efficiency, and model calibration and validation).

Dr. Zhu received a Ph.D. in Health Policy from Harvard University in 2022. She also holds an MPH from Yale University and a BS in Biology and BA in economics from Peking University.
