Assistant Professor Erika Martin researches how society allocates scarce resources to public programs, how health policies diffuse across jurisdictions, and the politics of HIV and substance abuse policy. Her research has evaluated the fairness and flexibility of federal allocation formulas for HIV care programs. She has also published several articles related to harm reduction for inveterate tobacco and illicit drug users. Currently, she is analyzing the impact of recent changes in national guidelines for HIV screening and state vaccination policies. She received her doctorate in health policy and administration from Yale University, and her master's in epidemiology from the University of Michigan.
