 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Dr Meyer-Rath is a Research Assistant Professor at the Center for Global Health and Development of the Boston University School of Public Health. She is a physician and health economist working on the economics of HIV and antiretroviral treatment in low- and middle-income countries. Her focus lies on modeling methods for economic evaluation, including infectious disease modeling and decision analysis, and translating research into recommendations for public policy. Before joining CGHD she has worked in the Pediatrics Department of Charité University Hospital Berlin, at the World Health Organization and at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Dr Meyer-Rath is currently based in Johannesburg where she works at the Health Economics and Epidemiology Research Office (HE2RO), a collaboration between Boston University and the University of the Witwatersrand. She holds a PhD in Health Economics from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as well as a MD/PhD in Physiology from Free University Berlin.
