About Professor Martin

University Expert

Erika G. Martin is an assistant professor of public administration and policy at the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, and a senior fellow and director of health policy studies at the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government. As an applied health policy researcher, she uses mixed methods to evaluate issues related to the allocation of scarce public health resources, and the adoption and impact of public health policies. Recent work in HIV policy includes examining the fairness and flexibility of the federal allocation formula for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, interstate variation in state HIV programs, the national budget impact of expanded HIV screening on public programs, the effects of the New York State HIV testing law on epidemic outcomes and resources needs, and how national health reform will affect HIV care across states. At Rockefeller College, Dr. Martin teaches courses in policy analysis and research design. She received her BA from Brown University, her MPH in epidemiology from the University of Michigan, and her PhD in health policy and administration from Yale University.
