Angela Bazzi, PhD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Community Health Sciences at the Boston University School of Public Health and a Boston University Peter Paul Professor. Dr. Bazzi’s quantitative and qualitative research seeks to identify, develop, and refine strategies to improve the health of socially marginalized populations affected by HIV and substance use. Recent and ongoing research projects have explored the HIV/STI prevention needs of female and male sex workers and their partners, male couples, and people who use and inject drugs in Mexico, Kenya, Ghana, and Boston. With funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA; K01DA043412) and the Providence/Boston Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), she is currently investigating the underutilization of antiretroviral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention among people who inject drugs in urban and non-urban areas of the U.S. Northeast. Dr. Bazzi received a PhD in Global Health from the University of California, San Diego, and an MPH from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. She completed postdoctoral training at the Harvard School of Public Health. Prior to her research training, she was a Reproductive Health Fellow at the United States Agency for International Development.
